Personally, I prefer the Intel side of things because of their motherboard chipsets. I have a 2100 running a home server right now, and it's no slouch at all. Others may differ, but I don't think there's much to be had in gaming with a quad-core as opposed to a dual-core, and the Intel setup would allow you to drop in a much faster processor a year later or so, if you wanted to.

I have thought long and hard and have decided to go the i5 2500K path
