I was going to upgrade my gaming gig. Right now, i have Mobo M3A78-EM, CPU AMd Phenom X4 9550. I'm thinking of going to the "dark side", with intel. I would get P5QL-ME or P5QL-SE (not sure yet which), with CPU q8300. Both CPUs are quad. My actual CPU runs at 2.2 ghz (i don't like the idea of OCing) while q8300 runs at 2.5 Ghz. But it seems that while my actual CPU has 4mb L2+L3 cache, Intel's has 4 mb L2. (it seems to lack of L3). I'd be honest: I ingore in which way does the L3 cache (or it's lack of it) affect performance. For same price, AMD's mobo looks way better (perhaps i'd upgrade to phenom II, perhaps stay with my actual CPU, depending on my budget). So, as a gamer should I stay AMD upgrading the mobo to M4A78-PRO or go Intel?
