Let me get on with this. this is what I would buy for the AMD build

Ram http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Motherboard http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Already have a video card and it is a http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
and Psu Corsair 600 watt

OR

Intel build

Go with the AMD. Best performance for the price, and far superior overclockability (lol) over Intels. That is an excellent processor for the cash. Don't go with the i5 unless you plan on making a hackintosh. Anyway, the AMD also has a lot better support for linux, which is what a lot of people building a pc use until they buy Windows. This seems like a great build, best of luck!

The AMD set up is perfect and a good balanced choice of parts so well done on that, both those CPUs you chose are strong choices and both will give you superb performance, so it just comes down to personal choice, if it was me id go with your AMD build, as more and more new games will be using all 8 of those cores.

Both will overclock well. The 8350 will achieve a higher clock, but, clock for clock, an i5 3570k is still faster in most games. There is only a $26 difference between the two builds you linked.
