I don't hold any of it against you. I could tell you weren't a major Intel fanboy.
If the price point is the same than I see no reason not to go Intel. I've noticed a decline in pricing for them lately when building my current system. Which in the past was pretty rare as they demanded $500 for their not so top of the line chip. AMD came with a motherboard for $350 at the cost of minor performance.
Now AMD graphics cards are out of my understanding. I've used Nvidia exclusively after 2002, the days before PCI Express. If you know more, than you can make those recommendations.
