if you are truly undecided, than wait a bit more till prices go down further, and then make the choice. if you can wait without your mains up and going that is.

i should put this in my sig one of these days : intel+budget=i3+h/p 55. for amd its easy with the above quads(and board that takes them,of course)

you get better power figures with the i3 build vs the amd quad, which will win over the i3 where 4 real cores are needed vs the afformentioned2+2. +- same price. ive built both, and unless you need the extra juice usually not worth it go fo 750/760 or a faster quad/hexa for amd.
