AMD still offers great CPUs, it just happens to be that Intels are faster in some regards. As far as gaming goes, I highly doubt that you'd feel much of a difference on either, as long as you have a nice model.

If you had to go run out and buy DDR2 as well, you might as well suck it up and just buy an Intel at the same time. Why? Personally I find them far more fun to overclock, especially with ram. My 4600+ X2 can't even support DDR2-1200 speeds on the ram, but with Intel it's like the sky is the limit.
