I am personaly an AMD person. I am looking for a new processor and I was wondering what in the line of AMD will stack up against an intel i5?

how about a phenom ii 955, phenom ii 965...
also the new phenom x6 1055t at around $220 is also in i5's price range...
As of right now the only thing they have is the phenom 2 955/965. It trades some blows with the i5 but there are clear instances where you would want an i5 over a phenom. If you think about it you normally get what you pay for, the i5 cost a bit more than the 955/965 but it also performs on the whole a little better. The new x6 chips should be coming out soon for amd, but you would have to wait for benches to see where it lands.
