The Intel system may perform better on every-day tasks, but I believe the integrated GPU of the AMD is a little more capable in terms of rendering video or light gaming.
If we lose this freedom of ours, history will record with the greatest astonishment, those who had the most to lose, did the least to prevent its happening.
I have an i3 2100 GPU/CPU and I think it renders video a lot better than the AMD quad it replaced. I like the part list of the Intel but I admit I'm partial to Intel because of the way it handles the tasks I use it for - newsgroup file manipulation/general use. I don't game with it but I wouldn't be afraid to run World of Warcraft or Diablo 3 on it in a pinch. The only thing I would do is dump in some aftermarket RAM to max out the board to 16 GB just because we'll never see RAM prices this low again.
