$600 budget build - Page 2

I maxed out Portal 2 @ 1080p with my setup, which is extremely similar to your proposed AMD build (but with an SSD and some other stuff that bumped up the cost a lot). No (noticeable) framerate drops whatsoever. There really is no reason to go with Intel for low-end builds (Pentium, i3) just as there's (currently) no reason to go AMD for high-end builds. Go with the first AMD build, and buy THIS if you're buying stuff right now. More RAM and less money spent.
