It doesn't matter how many times you say it, I've done a lot of research on both companies, and I really don't think they are.

they're not universally better.
I mean, I showed that the Phenom 9950 is cheaper than a Q6600 and has better gaming performance.
and after the ATI acquisition, their GPU's are way ahead of what Intel has

Apokalipse will defend AMD to the grave.

If OP is still hang around, go for a Intel build. Q9550's are awesome.

1. 4850 (cheaper, overall slightly faster, moreso with AA, overclocks better)
2. Corsair TX-650 or TX-750. Your system probably won't use that much, but they are efficient, and future-proof, as well as not particularly expensive

9800GTX+ performs 10% better than the 9800GTX, and is equal to, and in a lot of cases better than the 4850. Not by a lot, but it is better. You will however spend more money on it

9800 GTX+ is as fast as a 4850 without AA in most cases. When it is better, it's a very negligible difference though.
But the 4850 consistently performs better when AA is turned on.

If you can afford it go for it. You should be able to hit 3.6ghz no problem with a decent air cooling set up.

Yes AMD does make better GPU's then Intel but Intel does not really make many GPU's Intel makes CPU's mainly unlike AMD that does both. But Intel makes better CPU's AMD does not.

AMD holds its own and doesn't cut corners when it comes to their CPU's. Unlike Intel AMD doesn't have to pile tons of cache on a CPU just to make up for inferior an inferior CPU architecture.

*Edit*

Oh I thought you said "But Intel makes CPU's and AMD does not."

My bad.
