Default Thuban 3.2GHz vs__________?

OK so I'm way out of touch with AMD - not built one in years, but interested in the 3.2 Thuban black Ed. What is the comparable Intel - is it close to the i7 860? 4 cores vs 6, but I mostly game at decent res. I actually don't even need it, but feel like building something. :)

Better question: where are the good charts kept nowadays? Toms used to be good but seems to have gone downhill - this site only compares up to the x4 procs, so......ideas?
I build, I game, I upgrade. I build, I game, I upgrade. I build.....

Just read a review here and there and you'll find out what the Thuban compares to.

What's your current rig atm?
