Put down whatever you think is the best AM


D $2000 gaming computer. You can push the budget upto $2200.
Go wild people. I just want the best bang for my buck, everything else goes!

EDIT: If everyone is in consensus about AMD being inferior to Intel in the price range. Please cast your vote on the added Poll.

EDIT: I don't know how to add a poll on update, so just put in INTEL as your response, along with reasoning.

Why choose AMD at that price range, you would get better performance out of an Intel rig.

8350, h100i cooler, asus sabertooth, 16gb ddr3 2400, 500gb samsung SSD, 1tb WD 7200rpm, two GTX 780's, 1000w 80+ gold power, whatever full tower you like the looks of (i prefer the HAF X)

that ought to get you an 8core at somewhere between 4.6ghz to 5.0ghz gaming slayer that can max out anything at 120hz 2560x1440.

if you need a moitor, i have had great experience with my QNIX qx2710 from ebay at abotu $300. Mine OC'd to 117hz, but most people are able to get 120. theres some variation between them.. but all do at least 110hz

At that price point there is no reason to go AMD, unless the only thing you want to do is render videos...and even then....

With an AMD build you'll be spending money on stuff that adds nothing to your build just to hit the amount you want to spend. Go Intel and get the most for your money.

AMD owns the low-end bang for your buck rigs (FX-6300, APU build, etc.) but Intel is the way to go if you have that much money to throw around. Here's what I would build:
