Hi guys!

I am in the beginning stages of building a new HTPC meant to run xbmc and emulators. Neither Ivy Bridge or AMD Trinity are enough of a step up from previous generations to woo me over to the brand new stuff so I am looking at two options, hoping to pick one up on the cheap sometime in the near future:

1) Intel Sandy Bridge i3-2130
2) AMD Llano A8-3870k (and overclocking it)

I want to be able to run NFL Blitz and Gauntlet Legends at full speed. I get the feeling both CPUs will be able to (just by looking at MAME benchmarks for other CPUs and making my own estimates from those), but if somebody out there runs either setup, could you confirm (or shoot down) that thought for me?

Also, I know this is a different emulator, but a nice bonus for me would be to be able to run bsnes accuracy profile (specifically the most demanding part of the most demanding game, the title screen of Yoshi's Island) at full speed. If whoever answers the first question also runs bsnes, could you let me know if that is possible? If not, no biggie, it's not that important

Thanks a bunch!
