    It is a nice cpu, can't go wrong and like the amd cpu's you no need to upgrade for a while. Hell the 3 year old i7 920 is still by no means at all out dated by gaming standards, for a real money saver, you can pick up that cheap.

    u will have a bigger smile if u run it at 5ghz

    But this Bulldozer can go up to 8ghz, it wont be anything close to stable though

    I'm el Cheapo, so I go for AMD. Like SG said, in gameplay, hard to tell. Maybe a balanced machine would be better? You get bragging rights though with inteL cpu.
