Not going to find a 6 core Intel for that price...which I know that you know. The top of the line Intel chips are always quite pricey.
However, the question is whether you really need those extra 2 cores?? As you can get a solid 4 core Intel that will perform onpar or even outperform the AMD 6 cores...for the same price if not for a lower price. Just because it has more cores does not mean it's better. In fact, so many apps still don't take advantage of anything over a dual core...so 4 or 6 really doesn't matter much.
