So my budget is limited to $900, I like AMD but I know that Intel on average is much faster. I really want something that can handle large graphic design projects for my college classes but something that can also hold a good fps for games like Mass Effect 3, minecraft and other demanding games. I have been doing a lot of research and based on the research came up with both an AMD and an Intel build. Now it's just a matter of which is best. On one hand the Intel build has the much more powerful i7 3770k chip but on the other hand the AMD build has the more powerful 7950 gpu and a full 32gb of ram... Please no fanboy garbage just honest opinions! Preferably based off of personal experiences with these hardware's.
