I'm using these benchmark charts vs. price to get my general idea. http://www.cpubenchm...h_end_cpus.html and http://www.videocard...h_end_gpus.html
By doing this I realized Intel really isn't a bad way to go.. it's only $80-100 more for their better efficiency and performance..
But before I go making any real decisions.. If ya have any personal experience opinions or upgrade options (mostly on the mobos) give and take a few bucks, please let me know!
