If money is no object? Intel

 

I use an AMD (FX-8120 OC'ed to 3.8) because it was relatively cheap, and they work for what I want to do (gaming, some photo and video editing), I have never even gotten it to 75% load, but if you want the most you can get out of the system and you have the money for it, go for the Intel.

 

Also if youre going to spend all the money for this stuff you may as well get 2 (or 3) Titan's and run them in SLI for max performance.

If budget is no issue then go Intel - also if you are still involved in retail sales/repair (your profile pic suggests that) check out intel retail edge... specially their winter and summer deals... google it .. it might be of interest to you.

Indeed, if you have an unlimited budget, or very good connections/discounts, go for Intel in terms of raw power.  If you're more budget oriented or simply don't need, or want, to spend the money on the absolute best, go for AMD.  I use an FX-8150 and game regularly, I haven't been able to really stress the CPU.  On both Intel's LGA 2011 platform and AMD 990FX chipset, you will get full PCI-Express X16 speeds if two PCI-E X16 slots are occupied with graphics cards.

 

In other words, both CPU's are great.  You cannot go wrong with either of them.
