Most people here are not going to buy the processor alone. So you need to compare the whole Intel build vs AMD build
For example, if
you build a computer that have Phenom 9600 for $1100, then Q6600 with the same setup would cost $35 more if we assume that the motherboard cost the same
The price difference between $1100 and $1135 is only 3%
The performance difference between the AMD build and Intel Quad core build is around 14%
For their price they're very nice...
They are nice but Intel Quad core are nicer
