AMD does have a lot of kicks when it comes to gaming, but Intel still has the upper hand. The current 680i chipset that nVidia produces for Intel boards are amazing. Also, the new X38 Chipset boards from Intel are by far the best from what I've seen. They support things like DDR3 RAM. A select few use DDR2, which is slowly becoming outdated.
