I am trying to decide on which cpu to purchase, the AMD 6000+ or the intel i7 920. I can purchase the AMD for $80 or the i7 for $230. My question is how much "better" is the i7 over the AMD cpu? Is it worth the extra money? I do not do alot of gaming, I mostly do 3D/autocad stuff. Please let me know what you think. Thanks!

For 3D / AutoCAD, Core i7 is a much better contender than most CPUs on the market at this moment. The difference between 6000+ and i7 920 is very large in your applications.
