    That’s very difficult to answer…
    For a tight budget I would buy and AMD processor (like fx8350) and spend more money in the GPU.
    If money is not a problem then go for Intel.

    I'm going to go with Intel. Even if you are on a budget you can get an i5 that's capable of taking on even the most demanding games. i7s will be best overall but only really recommended if you are going to be doing other CPU intense tasks

    I always use Intel with my builds. AMD can suit your build but because I'm familiar with Intel CPU's and they're very reliable and perform perfectly for me, I prefer them.

    Intel. Amd may have started out going more towards gaming, but Intel has come forth and started releasing products meant for gaming.

    Stick with Intel. Intel is way better compared to AMD. They tend to work harder and last longer than AMD. And try getting a Nvidia Graphics card since they are really recommended.

    Nvidia stumps both but if you had to choose either i would go with AMD.

    Yeah, if you're rich, and i7 is good if you're a gamer AND want to stream/do youtube videos (rendering etc).
    If you just want to play games, buy an i5.

    Choose AMD for low budget and choose Intel if you have money.
