asking this question in the intel section of the boards is like asking fred phelps inj front of his whole congregation if he would prefer to sleep with a man or a woman.

Either an M0 E2160 or an E2180 which are all M0's would be a good choice, but not a great one. You are limited by cache, and it makes the biggest difference in games. Good cheap mobos for overclocking allendales would be the dfi blood iron, dfi dark p35, or the giga DS3L. All of which are proven overclockers.

Intel is worth every extra penny. I would highly recommend getting Intel over AMD. And yes, I was once an AMD fanboy!

The Amd set up for the parts I needed was at $360 less Power supply. I was looking to spend around $500. Please Help!!! Any suggestions?
So do you already have the GPU or no? Is $500 for everything (CPU, RAM, motherboard, HDD, optical, etc.) minus GPU and PSU, or everything minus PSU?

The thing is, he is on a budget, for the price, you can get a much better AMD chip than Intel. Don't get me wrong at the $150+ range, Intel kills, but for budget, everything I have seen shows AMD working wonders for pennies.
