True enough. There wasn't a huge difference in price but even if those setups I created were equal in price the intel setup would still perform better thus making it the better value in the long run. A low end z77 does run around $100, a z68 can be found for about $80.
I would love a 8350 to play with they seem like a lot of fun but there seems to be a premium price on that fun. Like I said if it was a few dollars cheaper at $169-179 I would have probably grabbed one but at $199 it just seems pointless in comparison to the intels at that price level.
