The Intel is faster but more expensive
The AMD has a decent onboard GPU but slower CPU performance

Really down to what you are doing or want to spend.

I bought some AMD FX CPU's in and I think for multi threaded applications they are better than I expected. Something like an FX6100 will do the job nicely. The Intel is faster but quite a lot more expensive. This processor is priced around i3 levels but it will do quite a bit better in heavy threaded applications such as LR and stuff like video.

But hey most folks on this forum are benchmark freaks who build the same boring pc's 0 imagination and no desire to try something new. Dare to be a little bit different!

The AMD APU's are interesting mostly if you have some kind of interest in the GPU performance and cost savings.
