    AMD if it's a budget build (They are cheaper)

    Otherwise I'd go with Intel since they perform better.

    I was talking to this guy at Best Buy and he said the AMD performed better. He also said AMD is more advanced in relation to Intel. Also, don't AMD processors heat up faster?

    I would say Intel, I don't have that much experience with it but most of the computers I see with gaming have Intel. My computer has an AMD and I don't like it that much.

    Wow dude just no.

    Right now the i7's have 4 cores. I can't remember if it was later revisions of the i7 or the soon-to-be i9's that will have 6 cores.

    Ive been happy with my dual AMD but I would suggest Intel. I have a dual core intel in my other pc and it works just the same.

    With the i7's Intel brought back hyper threading. Hyper threading makes it to where an application can not use more than 50% of the processor or individual core. Si it takes the amount of physical cores and cuts them in half. Which in turn yields 8 logical cores or threads.

    And for all the morons talking about heat... Just wow... You guys have no idea what you are talking abou. Stock cooling is fine for anyone that does not do extreme overclocking. so just can it about the heat.

    If you want to be a hacker you need an AMD.

    Is Your Son a Computer Hacker?

    If your son has requested a new "processor" from a company called "AMD", this is genuine cause for alarm. AMD is a third-world based company who make inferior, "knock-off" copies of American processor chips. They use child labor extensively in their third world sweatshops, and they deliberately disable the security features that American processor makers, such as Intel, use to prevent hacking. AMD chips are never sold in stores, and you will most likely be told that you have to order them from internet sites. Do not buy this chip! This is one request that you must refuse your son, if you are to have any hope of raising him well.
