Intel is alot better if you have over $1000-1500 for a corei7 build. if your budget is more $500-800 go with AMD.

My kuma 7750 performs very well and is prime95 8 hours stable @ 3.2ghz 62C peek temp, But it wont go up any more without some signifcant voltage and cooling changes.. Convertxtodvd encoding fps on medium: 125avg (Avg fps is based on 5 movies that i've converted to dvd) So basically yeah the kuma is a steal for $65. IMO

I disagree with vista 64-bit unless you are going to get more than 4GB ram.

Check the build I already posted. A 780G will be fine for you.
