Speaking from someone who owns both setups except for the intel 3960X.

I say save your pennies buy the AMD that way you can get a better SSD and GPU

With the AMD setups I have found them to be amazingly fast when you run them in raid strip and dual amd gpu.

any questions dont hesitate to ask

I would get a 2500k, a 2600k, or even a PhII X6 over an 8150. The money saved with the 2500k, or X6 would go to a faster SSD, or GPU.

Unless you have money to burn or an actual reason for a 3930x don't bother and just invest in a 2500k or 2600k

agreed more or less, i5 2500k or i7 2600k all the way for a high end system.

and more then 4 real cores is pointless just because of the way smp setups work.

i don't see why anyone would pay more for a i7 then the 2600k if they know what their doing.
on water cooling were looking at 5000mgz ish.

if you need to save a buck then i3 560 or a cheap amd quad-core. you can get both for about $120 and the i3 can overclock with good cooling to 4500mgz. its probably the best twin core every made though really the way things are going its getting to the point if you play newer games that id get a quad.
