That's what I'm saying, if you get yourself an x4 AMD (which is BETTER for games), you can get high-end MoBo with everything you will ever need on it, for about 100 quid... Similar MoBo for an intel will set you back around £150 mark, thats another extra £50 for NO PERFORMANCE GAIN.
I myself own intel, and always did since my Athlon 2600+ died, but if I was about to build a new budget rig now, i would go for AMD and for the saved money invest into an SSD or a better GPU, which would give me more performance.
