    If your budget is $250 go AMD.
  2. For $250 + $8 shipping you can get the following:

    Intel Core i5-4570 = $200 - $10 promo code: PREBLKFR69 = $190 + free shipping

    This is a good solution but I live in Australia and these parts are more expensive here and newegg.com doesn't ship here.
  4. Go AMD then since there is roughly a 30% price difference between the US and Australia.
