Amd or intel or DAW

I'm in the process of upgrading my pc and I need to decide between
Intel H55TC Motherboard & Intel Core i3 530 Processor Bundle
or the Asus M4N75TD Motherboard & AMD Phenom X4 9850 Quad Core Processor Bundle
for running PT8. I have both digi mini and m-audio 2496 w/ m-powered and wondered which would give the most bang for the buck and most importantly the least amount of headaches and trouble.
thanks

  1. i would go with an Athlon II x4 and a gigabyte mobo

    the original phenoms are a pain and the intel would be too expensive for an i3

    agree BUT it is impossible to say for sure without knowing the OP's uses of the computer
  3. Anyone know what PT8 is?

    Hmm. I'm not versed in that program at all. But I think you might just want to look at an inexpensive build with an Athlon IIx2 or x3.
