Here is where I melt the entire debate on "Intel is better than X" stuff. No matter what you get, you'll have 60 FPS with both brands. The only reason to spend extra on an Intel chip is for higher benchmarking scores (Bragging rights) or working with physics intense software.

Having used both, I've not felt preference towards either AMD or Intel because of said fact. It used to matter in the past, but technology evolves faster than the games do.

Here is where I not only agree, but it's also a proven fact that a corner is cut to save on costs. With the brand name filling in the hole to try and justify the price tag.
