Questions about AMD and Intel CPU

  1. Hello ? Today, I saw "TechSpot's PC Buying Guide" and I got a question regarding processors.

    I knew that AMD Phenom II X4 Processor is cheap and Core i7 is expensive.
    But I really want to know which processor is faster, specifically:

    AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition Deneb 3.4GHz
    AMD Phenom II X4 940 Deneb 3.0GHz
    Intel Core i7-950 Bloomfield 3.06GHz
    Intel Core i7-975 Extreme Edition Bloomfield 3.33GHz

    Can anyone arrange those 4 processors ? (Fastest is "1", Slow "4")

    1)i7 975
    2)i7 950
    3)x4 965
    4)x4 940

    if you want to build a gaming rig then you should consider getting a more powerful video card, not a more powerful CPU. A core i5 or x4 965 should be more than enough for a good gaming rig.
