I have an AMD 4850e processor which is a low voltage full sized PC processor. So it is on the lower end of their performance spectrum but on the higher end of the efficiency spectrum.

My system gets 60fps (at least) in every video game with max settings. Processor does not affect system performance all that much. Dont waste a lot of money upgrading to a barely better proc. AMD stuff is still good but the best intel stuff beats the best AMD stuff.

I'm not sure of the very current offerings, but every time I've compared the processor before the 'price jump' (for example, my 4200+ x2 was around $150 less than the next model up, at the time) has been in AMD's favor.

Considering the very minor performance loss from the next model up, and my habit of building on a budget, AMD has always been better bang-for-the-buck for me.

Nothing wrong with Intel, but take into account what you want it to do. A 200Mhz advantage these days isn't work an extra $150.
