AMD v.s. Intel

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819103849&cm_re=processors _desktop-_-19-103-849-_-Product
or
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819115067

Was thinking this graphics card:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?item=N82E16814121394

This RAM:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?item=N82E16820231277

This Case:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?item=N82E16811129042

This Power supply (Would it work with either processor?): http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?item=N82E16817139004

This Hard drive:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?item=N82E16822136073

This Mobo:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?item=N82E16813130263

Would all of this work with the 6 core AMD or just with the Intel I5? Help me out bros . My friend has been half-assing helping me out and I just want to get a nice computer so I can quit moaning about it.

Currently:
80 GB HD
AMD Sempron 1800+ 1.8 ghz single core processor
ATI Radeon X1300/1500 series 256 MB graphics card
3.5 GB ram (max for XP)

Also, on my new computer I'm torn between Operating Systems. I sort of love XP but at the same time I want 64 bit. Then I'd have to pirate Windows 7 which I already have a copy of...or I might run linux as the game I've been currently playing is compatible with linux which is just pro as **** aha.

Well, their products just consistently underperform, when compared to Intels. There was a time, about 10 years ago or so, when AMD was actually doing better. But that got stopped pretty quick when Intel was pushing out dual/quad cores. AMD had a crap factory making quads, but there were issues with them, so they shut off the problem core and started selling em as tri-core chips. Business saving move, but still selling failed chips.
Long story short, Intel just puts out chips that perform better. AMD just never caught back up.

Well, I went with the i5-760 but it's up to you.
If you check cpubenchmarks the 6core outperforms the i5 but only because of 6 cores so the i5 would still be faster in way more stuff.
And where's the motherboard for the 6core?

I'm way too tired to analyze all that atm.

But what I can say is after using AMD for like 5 years and making the switch to intel I'm def hooked. But I've yet to get my hands on an nvidia gpu so not sure what I can say for their vid cards. But processors yeah, go with the iseries. Might wanna look into ATIs new 6000s. And for $10 more give or take you can get a way better case with more fans/better looking.

if u want the fastest and most expensive cpus then go with intel. everyone else is smart and enjoys 10-20% less performance for like 40% of the price of an intel cpu and has money for a cpu of the next generation .

benchmark results arent everything.

I'm sorry, but as a male, I know that coolness is determined by whoever holds the higher numbers.
And just like you said, you'll have money for the next generation to come out......... in the next 6 months. And you have to get it, because now your underperfoming chip can't keep up with the latest games/applications. And all that time, I'm still using the same chip I bought, with no need to upgrade for quite some time.

I still think Intel is the better deal.

If you want to bash a company as a fanboy, at least get your facts straight. The issues AMD had had nothing to do with making bad quads, there was a bug in the TBL. Which was fixed when Phenom II CPU's came out. And they planned on selling tri-cores from the start of the Phenom architecture. This is just smart, because not all the CPU's on a wafer are perfect, this way they can sell a CPU that isn't stable as a quad as dual or triple, instead of binning them. For us customers its actually a good thing, because demand for triple and dual cores is so high they disable fully working quads as triple. And if you're lucky, like I was, you can unlock the extra core on a tri-core, and have a quad-core for very little money. Besides that, AMD's price/performance and performance/power consumption ratio's totally own Intels. They may not have the fastest raw performance, but in the mid-range price range they beat Intels CPU's hands down.
The only reason to buy Intel, is if you do professional video editing or stuff like that. For us normal people there's not much difference. Who cares if you get 100 FPS in a game or 105 FPS, it's not like you notice that anyway.
Just buy an AMD CPU, and save money here, to put that in a better graphics card. It'll give you more value for your money.

This is another bull**** statement. I'm using a 2 year old AMD CPU, which is fully capable of running anything I trow at it smoothly. Back when we had single core CPU's your statement was valid, but not in this multicore age.

Yep I'm a total dweep, because I do research to get most value for my money.
At least I don't sit behind my computer going through forum posts to look for someone to troll to get attention
