i lean towards the best which is AMD , AMD kick Intel's *** right now, intell generate more heat, use more watts, and process almost always slower than AMD. amd's 90nm cores even beat intel's 65nm cores.

Yes, right now. Wait till july and august, when the new intel cores come out. The tables are very likely to turn then.
