  1. Which phenom are you looking at? Is it a Phenom or a Phenom II and is it a 2, 3, 4, or 6 core processor? There are lots of options, phenom is not specific. Also which i3 are you looking at they come in a large variety of speeds and prices
  2. +1

    it depends on the budget, and the processors in question.

    if an i3 is the best intel chip you can get, but you could get a phenom II 1055t, then its gonna be a no brainer.
  3. a phenom ii x4 940 beat core i3-540 in any games and any apllication in lower price than i3-540.
    here look at price :

    and here in anandtech:

    each core of core i3 540 is faster than phenom ii 940 but phenom ii 940 with 4core is better than i3 540 with two core.

    Actually ,my hardware knowledge is in basics,that I won't know the difference between them.
    And the market doesn't offer any varieties except for Intel ,that you can choose just 5 or 6 models of AMD if they exists !!So basically AMD stuff are 75% higher in price than Intel!

    I will look for the available ,and will get back.
