If you haven't built before, a motherboard bundle with processor heatsink and fan already installed and tested is often a good idea and usually no more expensive

You really will save if you go for AMD

If there has been an unhappy experience in the past then tell us about it, but you will get a better deal or a faster system if you get AMD
