Which proc is better?

Hi
Not sure if writing in good place.

I want to buy new PC. And i have to choose one of 2 procs:

  • AMD phenom II X4 965
  • Intel Core i5 2400

Here i can see that Intel is better in blender 2.48a: http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/102?vs=363

And here is my question:
Will the rating in cycles be suitable to this one?

“Will the rating in cycles be suitable to this one?”
i would say so.

you might take the planned GPU into account. AMD/ATI - INTEL/NVIDIA combinations seams to perform best.
