For gaming the amd one is better. For general use, the intel one is better.

You sacrifice too much GPU power on the Intel build. The 7850 should still handle most games on high though.

I would go AMD build. I think you're cheaping out on the motherboard too much though.
You're doing hybrid Crossfire? Tell us how it goes. :)

How so am I cheaping out on the mobo? I didn't pick it out, someone did when I asked on another thread for some help.

Ik the 7950 is a beast, but what about the processor? Just comparing the CPUs, which is better?
