AMD or INTEL with Radeon Cards?

If im getting a Radeon ATI Graphics card, is it better to stick with a AMD CPU rather than a INTEL CPU? Does AMD with ATI Cards give better performance?

  1. Depends on which CPUs you're talking about. But as a straight up difference, there is none, and if there is, it's minimal at best.
