AMD vs Intel

Im planning on purchasing a new computer and I was wondering which was better for gaming?
The AMD Phenom II X2 550 Dual-Core
or
The Intel Core 2 Duo E8400

I play games like WoW and MW2

  1. Looks like you already made your decision, but IMO I would get the AMD anyway- its cheap, and its upgradeable. The Core 2 is stuck in LGA 775 socket, which is going away, while the AM2+/AM3 socket is current and not going anywhere just yet.
  2. This might help.

    Pretty good benchmarks on CPU's/Video Cards/Hard Drives.
  3. Might want to look into athlon II x3, better value than Phenom X2
