To use my car analogy to answer your second question (can AMD cpus run every game?): That's like asking, "Can a Ford go 70mph?" Sure, most newer Fords will be able to do this, but you can bet that the 1908 Model T can't. Similarly, most newer AMD cpus won't have problems with most games, but if you have an older one, it might not be fast enough to run newer games. The only way to be sure is to check the minimum requirements for the game.

there are some things to consider:
1)what games are you going to play?
2)what do you think you might want to play a year for now. better to buy up front than to try and upgrade later.
3)what video card will you use
4)what resolution will you run at? this has a great deal of impact on performance (more video than cpu, but still a valid consideration).
The article has several nice graphs comparing the two processor and how they scale with Unreal tournament 3. Many of todays new games are using this engine to power them.
