Actually it doesn't

In fact I just priced his mobo and cpu out on newegg and it's exactly the same price as a 2500K and gigabyte Z68 motherboard.

The 2500K will pretty much destroy the 1090T stock vs stock, and once overclocked even more so. Not to mention you can save on cooling costs getting a SB, Thuban will always require a more expensive heatsink.

Yeah my sister keeps telling me to go Intel, but I've met alot of Gamer's who built their PC Who swear by their OCed AMD. I'll have to look into it more.

Ell, seeing as a 2500k can get around 4.5-5Ghz... AMD has nothing that an reach that.

Intel beat amd when they brought out the core 2 duo and havent been beat yet.

Maybe this one?

Galaxy 56NGH6HS4IXZ GeForce GTX 560 Ti (Fermi) 1GB 256-bit DDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

If I switch out the 460 with the 560ti the whole shabang will run me about 1 grand. Pretty good me thinks.
