As you can see, the E6600 beats the FX-62 in pretty much every application, they didn't even bother comparing the FX-57. I think, yes, your friend is what people like to call an AMD fanboi.

There is absoluty not competition between AMD and Intel CPU's at the moment, that is when your comparing the equivalent Intel to the equivalent AMD processor. At this point in time, it's really hard to recommend a AMD processor, unless your building on the really low end. the 6600 is a really good processor, you shouldn't be disappointed.
The only reason why he says single core will be better then dual core, is because for games in the most part they are only single threaded, meaning can only use one core. Also in the most part (unless you overclock) the dual cores have a lower clock speed. But games are going to be multithreaded in the coming future so there is now no reason at all to buy a single core CPU.

Intel is getting so far ahead of AMD is scary, i hope AMD keeps up, because they are taking hits left and right, right now. O well they'll come back some time late this year or next year....I hope (the better the competition, the lower the prices).
P.S. The price/performance ratio of the FX-60 isn't very good either.
