They will fry while you play, and you won't know it!
AMD aren't bad for gaming or any other task in general. The reason why people may prefer AMD over Intel or vice versa is because they want better performance and speeds. I prefer Intel over AMD but I have an AMD laptop that is my main computer and an older Acer desktop with a Pentium 4 that I use for light gaming and various other tasks and my ASUS laptop that has an E2 Vision CPU for which use for light gaming like Minecraft/Tekkit, Sims and a lot of other task. The CPU that the op listed would be ok for gaming but not running real high end games that are being released.
That maybe the experience you have had with AMD and you if you had the right cooling and other hardware you may not have had that problem.
