Re: Buiilding New Computer - Help with CPU choice.
I would go AMD if you would like the onboard GPU performance to be high enough to game and / or if you want to stick to budget.
However, to be as open and fair as I can manage (and I love AMD) the price performance per hertz on Intel vs AMD still strongly favours intel. If you were planning on buying an $200+ GPU anyway, you'll really be in the ballpark, where, the Intel systems are preferred.
You won't mind both long term, but I think some of the AAA titles will be favouring 4 strong fast intel threads with hyperthreading (and therefore 4790k or successor). If your gaming requirements are lower, then, you can arguably go AMD and get strongish results. The Current APUs are (I believe) ok for DX12 which hopefully will give us all a per-pixel boost.
Nice, tough question!
