You should look at the piledriver(especially the 8350 vishera's) benches especially with some of the new optimizations around. They're at, equal or beat the I7, in other cases under perform by just abit and you're paying $150 less for the chip.

My previous rig before my 965x4BE was a dualcore intel, I'm looking at building a new rig soonish and I'll probably be sticking with AMD. Though even with that, I'm still arguing as to whether or not to upgrade at all, this current rig is still chugging along fine nearly 3 years later and I'm still not seeing serious problems with gaming. I might just wait 9mo for the prices to bottom out and pick up some of the stuff cheap.
