Hmm, I currently have a FX 8150, it works just fine though, I expected more. Currently what i can see from AMD vs Intel is that AMD is trailing behind sadly enough. Though they tend to be cheaper in price, it seems that if you start taking out cpu's of comparable prices that intel seems to be a bit ahead in performance.
Though it might be best to take a look at some hardware sites and look at whats new.
However having said all that. You dont need lots of cpu power to play games. Its still the GPU that does most of the work. Just gotta make sure that the CPU doesnt become a bottleneck for your GPU.
