If you're concerned about performance then AMD is not the way to go. If you are on an extreme budget then it is (sometimes).

do you know how to overclock and are you willing to do it, because it's not as easy as some people make it seem. If you are, then go ahead and go for Intel, but if you aren't then get AMD. AMD isn't as bad as people make it seem lol.

Stop your hissy fits, you're making the boy nervous :P

Id recommend the Gigabyte P35 DS3L motherboard, however it is in the low end section and perhaps you want to spend a little more? I dont see what else you can get out of your money though, unless you want to go SLI?
