Default Help me choose a processor upgrade please!?

Newegg.com - Intel Core i5-2500K Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz (3.7GHz Turbo Boost) 4 x 256KB L2 Cache 6MB L3 Cache LGA 1155 95W Quad-Core Desktop Processor BX80623I52500K


Or

Newegg.com - AMD Phenom II X6 1100T Black Edition Thuban 3.3GHz, 3.7GHz Turbo 6 x 512KB L2 Cache 6MB L3 Cache Socket AM3 125W Six-Core Desktop Processor HDE00ZFBGRBOX

???

I5 2500k or AMD Phenom II x61100T?

I like AMD, they look like they are less of a ripoff and I've always heard they are...But I've seen a few user reviews that claim that the i5 in question is actually faster than this hexacore by AMD, what do you guys think? $230 is about the perfect pricerange, and these seem to be the competitors.

Definitely the i5.

Sorry, the i5 is definitely faster than the 1100T. I'm an AMD guy, but as of right now, I would buy Intel over AMD...

Thanks man. No matter how much you like a company, you can't deny better performance for a cheaper price. 5 dollars less for the i5. I have to take it.
