    What is your budget?
    The intel build definitly looks good, but on a budget i would forget the low end SSD, and get a 1TB HDD insted.

    well actually no it isn't most of the time but IMO if your starting at the low end amd is better. here are the pros for amd :

    1) cheap, easily overclockable cpus
    2)MoBos are cheap but get you high end features like Over clocking and USB3 and whatnot.
    3)next gen console cpus are amd based so next gen ports might be optimized for AMD

    pros for intel :

    1) quad core cpus are somewhat faster than amd cpus.

    there are other pros for intel but i can't think of any for the low end segment.

    but really its up to you to decide:

    do you want future upgradability and overclockability (amd) or faster current performance(intel) ?
  6. Another vote for AMD. They're definitely better for lower budgets.
