I'd go with the i5 because good AM3 chipsets don't support SLI (and if you're planning Fermi that's big). That said, at the moment I can't see you getting huge performance boosts in most games due to the switch, at least not with that GTX 260. Once you go Fermi or 58xx it may be worth upgrading, but again, by that time there could easily be bigger and better things available (or the same things at a lower price).
