    Even at slower stock speed and with fewer cores the better architecture of the i5 makes it faster in just about every real word application. Thuban is faster in a few synthetics and that is about it. The i5 also keeps scaling as you overclock and the Thuban hits a wall around 3.4-3.6 and stops improving. Even the Phenom II 9xx series are better gaming CPUs.

    I am no fan boy either way but at $200 i5 wins. AMD is great for budget systems. I am building my sister an X3 440 system right now.
  4. that build does not include a hardrive?
  5. ehh looks like a good combo although in some tests and benchmarks a phenom X4 is better in games than the X6
