AMD also doesn't make horrible products. At stock speeds they offer a better value, that savings can be used towards a better GPU which is more of a bottleneck than the CPU.
The only reason I ever build an intel/nvidia machine for someone is when they want the best performing computer their money can buy.
Most would rather spend $800 or so and get a machine that performs 80% as well as $3000 gaming rig.
I am one of those people.
The Intel system would be cheaper
, faster, and consumes far less energy.

...don't get me wrong intel wins on the performance front but I look at it from all angles in gaming BD does not look that far behind
and for that price i'm not going to complain.
Look at the image I just posted above you, BD is terrible in gaming.
