Default AMD vs. Intel

hi guys! i am going to build a computer, and i am deciding on cpus. i am looking at barebone kits on tigerdirect, or just building with my own parts. one of the kits has an i5-2500k processor. i was wondering how this compared with the fx amd 8 core processesor (in a different kit) and the amd x6 1045t processor in yet another kit. there is about a one hundred dollar proce difference between the intel processor, and what i think are its equals in amd. some say that amd is worse quality, but it is much cheaper. i dont know what to do. regardless of whether i build or build a barebones kit, which processor should i get? (between the three listed)

depending on your budget, you'll want the i5-2500k.
