Tehh,, That's a totally and completely incorrect stereotype. AMD is not always better for gaming, nor Intel better for gaming. Same for editing. It's solely based on which processor you buy and which instruction sets it comes with. Intel's new Q9 series procs have SSE4.1 digital encoding instruction sets for compiling/editing quicker. I'm sure AMD has something just as good.

If you're doing more gaming, spend less on the processor, more on the video card. Get a core2duo or a lower clocked quad core, and get a GTX260.
