Yes the I5 is better, intel is faster bla bla bla BUT it all depends on what your wanting.
If you game, and nothing more, go with AMD, cheep and im using a 970, not touched the clock and playing BF3 all in ultra perfectly.
If your using more heavier applications (which i doupt if your asking about them
) Then go with intel.
But AMD will work fine for gaming and every day use
