    Listen. you go with amd if you are on a budget, or need more cores for rendering. The Intel core i5 would run games better as it has multi threaded cores.

    I forgot, I use an intel core i7 that has hyper threading and had forgotten that was one of the differences between i5's and i7's.

    Are you making a choice on which components to buy?
    If so then it all depends on your budget and such, it also depends on your definition of "better", what are you looking for from a computer CPU?

    I currently have a AMD FX-6300 Black Edition, and frankly its amazing, but the only reason that i got this over intel is that i had quite a small budget and it was much cheaper.
    If you're looking for help with building a PC then i am always happy to help, just send me a message and i can help you choose components and such based on your budget/needs.

    I am good at picking parts. Just tell me your budget, your main aims of what you want to use this PC for.

    Not sure about that power supply, maybe get one with a higher efficency.

    The power supply is very important, if that gets screwed, everything is screwed.
    My old custom PC blew up completely from a dodgy power supply.
