I will tentatively agree with most of the responses here, but I find that the benchmarks provided show games poorly optimized for AMD chipsets, the problems with Skyrim are Skyrim's problem, not AMD. And either way your paying more for less with Intel even if it is "good enough".
Your free to take that opinion, I wholeheartedly disagree. Does Intel outperform AMD, yes but only by the slightest margins, and at 2x-4x the cost (depending which model you go for). To say that the 8350 gets "smacked around" is laughable. Price versus performance AMD wins everytime. I implore you to show a trusted benchmark that shows anything more than 5-10% increase in performance vs AMD.
And even you can, you honestly think its worth the price tag?
