    I do not know the actual equivalents, but I use a AMD Athlon 6000 x2 for my high definition video editing needs...

    Effectex,

    You might benefit from a benchmark recently provided to me by my Dell rep. From one of my last Server purchases, I have a link to a benchmark site for AMD vs Intel comparisons. I was SURPRISED that an AMD 12 core CPU didn't perform better than an Intel 8 core. Here's what I was provided by my Dell Server rep
    EDIT: this may duplicate the link provided by Xeno1

    Looks pretty good to me. Always make sure you check that your ram is included on the compatibility list. You can buy ram that's not on it, but you take your chances. I'm also not particularly fond of Cooler Master power supplies. Make sure you go on some place like Newegg and read the reviews on the one you want.
