Re: AMD vs. Intel?
You can get a good Intel build that plays games for like $500 without OS, Monitor, Keyboard, Mouse. It's a little less for an AMD one that's almost the same thing but the Intel will OC a lot better.
What kind of build were you putting together? An i7 or something?
AMD's dual cores are still fast but not as fast as Intel's.
