I wouldn't even suggest going AMD, the i5 2400 beats all AMD chips I say that without a doubt. In fact it beats the flagship 8150 in most benches specially gaming. Although the i5 2400 can't overclock, even after overclock most AMD chips can't beat the i5 2400. The 8150 can after OC but is it really worth it considering you increase the TDP by about 100w.
