My System Specs

Default is a quad core phenom or phenom2 better then intel dual core?

I am really new to the AMDs and i am not sure what works with which board . to me AMDs have so many board it confuses me.
and since most AMDs are cheaper ( at least I think that they are) I was wonder if a quad core phenom or phenom2 better then intel dual core? I ask this because I was thinking of moving up to a quad core CPU but looking at the prices of Intel quad cores that are around the 2.6.3 ghz rand ..they are really expensive. I could probably get a decent AMD quad CPU for the same price as a Intel dual core, this is why I asked the question. I do have a amd Athon 64x2 5600+ but that thing runs about the same as my old P4 3ghz cpu.
where can I find info on a good mix of Motherboard and cpu ( AMD) because I am thinking of going AMD if they are decent in price as well as performance
