Yeah, I always see people picking Intel which I've had and know is truly better but don't see how AMD could be wrong when it's a budget + not overclocked. I just haven't had one in years and want to know if it's performance is well.

considering that you are not overclocking, and the performance of the 940 sits nicely above q8300 I would go with the 940. Some may argue that the 940 and the q8300 have the same performance, so I would just say go with the higher clock speeds, which is the 940 anyways

Yeah that is a good combination I see a lot of people do that but for some reason I just like using the two brands together.

An even better way to compare: take that extra $30 from the AMD and buy the 4870 (they're about $30-40 more than the 4850) and even the prices out.
See what everybody chooses then... - I like intel but the AMD especially with a 4870 would dominate.
