AMD will always have a better price to performance ratio. If you are looking for a CPU that will be more than enough in any game and also allow you to multitask better, plus save you money on the entire build - CPU, Mobo, ect then go with AMD. Even Bulldozer brand new will still be cheaper than most of Intel's offerings right now.

I vote you pick the i5-2500k. 6 cores don't impress me when you don't have many programs that can fully utilize them all.

i5 2500K or i7 2600K is pointless to gain that extra 5-10FPS in games, whilst your easy getting 60-120-260FPS in games easy with a X6 and a decent enough GPU.

jonespwns,

As you can see in my sig, I have both and I must say that the SB is the better/faster of the two. I built the 1090T when there were a few motherboard issues for the SB. My daughter needed a new pc, so I jumped at the chance to give here the 1090T and build myself a SB rig to see what it was all about. I'm glad I did.

If you have the choice, go with the SB. Good luck and enjoy whichever one you build.

If you've the cash to spare, I'd go with a SB. The PII x6 has more cores, but the SB chips clock-for-clock has faster performance. Then there is the fact that no programs I can think of benefit from the two additional cores of the x6.

It's definitely faster for gaming performance and beats out the PII x6 in digital post processing. For $200, I'd definitely go with a 2500k. It lacks hyperthreading, but is still one hell of a chip (faster than 1090T) and OCs like no other.

You can easily OC the 2500k to high clocks with a $114 board though it'll require a bit more voltages that are still within the VID spec, plus you'll lack other features compared to higher end boards.

You don't need a $199 board to get high over clocks.
This, i bought mine for $80 on sale (Lol) but it runs my Chip at a rock solid 4.4Ghz with only 1.3v which is AWESOME!

Focus on upgrading your GPU. All the top end processors from AMD and Intel will be about the same in most games - you really won't see the difference unless you have them side by side.

NO YOU FOOL! DON'T GO AMD RIGHT NOW

I would suggest you purchase the i7 2600k , its a good deal and people seem to be able to overclock them insanely! Plus the G1.Sniper 2 is coming out and it is ready for 22nm tech .. Ivy Bridge I think.. Just saying Intel right now is future proof. At this time AMD will not be in full swing to some time mid or early next year. As much as I love AMD and cheated with them with INTEL because I am bad... But Intel right now is your best bet for for 1000 dolla you can get enough, maybe 3-4 items and if you have a decent case to fit it all

BTW Leave Newegg.com alone, I would recommend Amazon.com because Amazon is tax free and right now you can get a free month of Amazon Prime. What Amazon Prime does is gives you the ability to do 1 day shipping for freaking $3.99!!! and no tax, so you get it faster and you save money .. where as Newegg... no not at all. I am actually really starting to like Amazon a lot more than Newegg

not sure where you are getting the hate for Newegg. I've had nothing but good experiences with the egg and I have built 5 different systems in the last 4 years all with parts from newegg.

@OP I would recommend going with a 2500k as well. They are very good overclockers and perform better clock for clock than the Phenom II chips. Depending on how long you wait and save up money you may be looking at an Ivy Bridge or Bulldozer set up.
