I guess it's up to your brand loyalty. I know the i5 may "kill" the Phenom, but you can save a few dollars with AMD. You can get a decent AM3 board for about $75 these days, and the 955 can get had for $175 at times. I also like the AM3 heatsink mounting system better, and I find that some of the motherboards have unique layouts and sometimes better features. If you don't want SLI then you won't miss the Intel board, right?
