Unfortunately I live in South Africa, prices for the amd 920 and 940 are actually quite different here, amd is however fairly cheaper than intel, I need to know the best option, especially as I plan to go with an ati workstation graphics card, even if it's not the v5700 (something better) so I need to know off compatibility issues if any, or if the amd cpu will work better with an amd graphics card, but also which cpu is the best for workstation graphics. :p

workstation graphics cost a hell of a lot even for the midrange, as such I need to get educated further on the subject, mainly what I am asking is which cpu works better in 3D rendering, I am going for an amd firegl card, as apart from the high end ones nvidia workstation cards cost twice as much for the same performance. I want to know about the affinity between amd graphics/cpu and intel graphics/cpu, its pros and limitations. If you can tell me thank you very much for your time and effort. :D

well the Q9550 offers a better experience in pretty much everything except gaming against the phenom's.
