This is a $200 difference. Is this really worth it for 10% better performance though?

I'd also prob have to get a cooler master and a Z-87 mobo with the i5, so that's an extra 80...

A $280 difference.

$600 Vs. $900. I'm really leaning towards the AMD because it will run games just fine and I'm not a hardcore PC gamer as it is, but anything is better than the store bought prebuilt with integrated graphics I bought in 2009 LOL

760 is quite a bit better than a 750, and probably means your getting a proper power supply allowing you to upgrade video cards again in the future.

I'll be getting a 650 watt Corsair either way it goes. But a $300 difference, honestly I'm gonna go with the AMD build. I can sell it in a few years for 4 to 5 hundred bucks and use that to make a beastly intel then.

If your building your own why bother with AMD?
I've done the cheap AMD thing and regret it.

The intel one is much better than 10%. More like 20-30+%.

Not sure where you getting 10% from, but the intel system with the 760 is a great midrange gaming system, its going to be a lot better all around. It will play all but a handful of games at this time at 1080p 60 fps. Your basically a gtx 770 away from maxing just about everything out there at this time.

The other system while, is good for a budget, not really sure where you getting you'll sell for $500 in a few years cause with the right deals you might be able to make that for $500 now, especially if you own the OS already, unless youa dding weird stuff like super expensive cases or whatnot.

ANd if you getting that 650 watt corsair PSU IM assuming its the TX? That's quite expensive overkill for your AMD build. You get could get something for half the price that's plenty good and save even more $$ if you really want to stay cheap.

Maybe forget about overclocking and go with a non-K i5 and an H87 motherboard, along with an R9 270 and a Corsair 500W PSU.
