Don has put together a rough ranking system here for both Intel and AMD ... and even though it is based on gaming it is a pretty fair evaluation.

Once you start overclocking a CPU though, then this ranking goes out the door.

Hope this helps.

AMD and Intel both have great CPUs. Intel is currently winning, but it just means more idle times since almost nothing can use current multi-core systems. AMD is better at re-using sockets

Without knowing what your needs are, this is a really pointless post. Photoshop CS4? Maya 3d? Some CAD program? Or just some casual gaming.... All have different answers, and then there is budget to consider.

Intel seems to be winning at the moment with their i7s.. and the new i9s are apparantly going to run on a 1366 or 1156 socket
