    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!
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Thank you guys some people still have faith or not total fan boys of Intel I know basically all my friends are give me lip on there Intel components I am going to have a blast on this build lol my dad built this comp with the Athlon 64 x2 Dual Core 3800
