intel's core2duo/quads are faster than amd x2/phenoms in practically every gaming benchmark. the phenom 9850 is only competitive with the q6600. the q9300 is faster than both and the q9450 even faster.
As some of you might know from previous posts I?m planning on buying a computer and I saw that the AMD processor is much cheaper than the Intel processor and I wonder if there is any bigger difference between these two computers:
