Yep, AMD is cheaper than Intel but performs worse. atm with the Sandy Bridge cpus so dominant, I wouldn't even consider building an AMD system. But that's just me, a self confessed intel fan boy

Agreed with the above post.

I think I saw a post which perfectly describes AMD Processors: "85% of Intel's Performance, 75% of Intel's Price"

You could wait for the Bulldozers to come out though.

Hey S0ULphIRE you forgot to mention thermal paste in step 3.

And if you (Hayden13) need more help putting it together there is an animated guide here: The animated guide to Building a PC

Since he's not OCing he'll be sticking with the stock thermal paste, which comes already applied on the bottom of Intel heatsinks. Good catch for other builds tho
