    As an AMD build is cheaper, it has no upgradabiity to better chips, and it doesn't have strong cores. Intel can be upgraded to an i5 or i7 and it has better single core durability
  7. I would go to wolverines build,i would also prefer the http://pcpartpicker.com/part/gigabyte-motherboard-ga990fxaud3 as mobo but it is double up the price of the asus one,but it is a great one.

    Correct. To keep it under $700, I had to use a 970 chipset board, but ideally you would want to use a 990FX board.
