actualy both boards are top tier for each company amd / Intel so how is that not comparative also the amd one will also socket the next gen ( steamroller )top tier amd cpu unlike the intel one and yes in a lot of case the amd fx 8350 will perform nearly same or better than a Intel quad with HT in a lot of cases then bring in the overclocking and same happens for less than 1/2 the price. I am sorry I see it crazy to pay 2 times the money to only get a 4-10 fps increase at best in most cases.
I will put it like this the 8350 will perform perfectly fine for gaming and will easily keep you in the good fps range on almost any game if not then overclock it and I quarantee it will for 1/2 the price and you still have room to upgrade to next gen cpu the steamroller I play all my games maxxed out with ease on 3x hd 7970 gpu's with nearly no bottlenecking at all at 4.8ghz x8 my main rig I only use for gaming (the one in my sig ) and nothing else and trust me it flies at any game I set it at I have yet to find a game unplayable or under playable framrate so if you want to pay the premium for an overpriced Intel have at it and waste the extra cash that you could invest into ssd / another graphics card and so on.
I also want to point out from here forward games will be oriented more towards the new AMD architecture due to AMD winning the contracts on nearly all the consoles and they will be running the jaquar core cpu a 8core AMD ( similar to AMD fx cpu's but downclocked) this meens games will be more geared towards AMD also these are also powered by AMD graphics lol in the area of a AMD ati radeon HD 7000 series GPU / APU this is for xbox720 / ps4 and likely steam piston and many more so next gen games will be designed around AMD architecture along with be dx11 standard not a dx9 console ported over to dx11 like it has been in past.
I see the above information giving AMD a huge leap forward in advancement (by meens of added funds for R&D ) also from a programing standpoint an edge in games being better coded for AMD is a huge benefit to AMD CPU's/GPU's/APU's period and removes a lot of biased compilers now in a lot of the games out leaning towards Intel.
I want to point out almost all games are first designed around console then ported over to pc as of lately and in past this will no longer hamper the outcome once the newwer games are being made on the new consoles the pc will see a huge leap forward in the graphics field along with a lot better games period (aka less buggy ) and games will no longer be designed around a console version of 30fps dx9 then bumped up to dx11 at 60+ fps what this meens is a lot for us the gamers and it is a huge leap forward for AMD in many ways.
