AMD has better architecture.

At 2.2Ghtz it can out perform a 3.8 in gaming.

yes with amd they run at lower clocks but they can do more than the equivalent intel chips. For example,an athlon 64 3700+ runs at 2.2 ghz, but it is equivalent to if not better than an intel p4 3.7ghz. If you want heavy gaming go amd.

I suggest the athlon 64 x-2's

or
The amd fx-seris. They are especially made for heavy gaming.
