I'm not trying to start a forum war, just trying to get opinion on which build will have higher performance (they are about 20 bucks apart). Also, any suggestions to either list would be appreciated!

For $600 and under it's always best to go with an AMD build. More bang for your buck on a budget build.

amd is the best if you are on a low budget intel if you have a bit of money

Go with the AMD if you have an under $600 budget (which you do). If you just want to build a working system for now, the Pentium one has a better upgrade path, but AMD gives more bang for your buck.
