Due to budget am going for AMD < it isnt valid anymore
you can get more or better performance with intel build at similar price
How come.?? Intel CPU's are much expensive.
I thought AMD offers good performance for the cost paid..
AMD is a good performer (especially for the one you chose) in programs that makes use of multiple cores. Since games don't make use of this feature, AMD's performance lags behind intel.The i5-3470 is only slightly more expensive than that AMD processor but performs better in gaming (something like 30% more).
