Alright so I've been thinking about building a new PC mostly for video editing and media editing/creation, I might partition the HDD to have mac osx on it aswell as windows 7, but either way I'm not quite sure what delivers more for something like that.

INTEL i7 Quad Core @ 3.06 Ghz

vs.

AMD x 6 @ 2.8, 3.2, 3.4 Ghz


If you have any other suggestions please feel free to let me know :) 

Thanks

No doubt core i7 will be faster but as both Intel and AMD are releasing new CPU's soon, they both will be better then above models.

So i7 as a quad is faster than AMD as a x6?

I'm just confused as to how it works between intel and amd

Yeah but remember new Intel CPU's are releasing on 9th Jan, 2010 which will replace the current Intel i3/i5/i7 series with much better performance.

Best of Luck !!

Thanks mate, and yeah i heard i'll probably either get an i7 sandy bridge or wait for the others to drop when sandy bridge comes out than grab a more expensive i7
