My System Specs

Default

I would go for an i3 as the basis (no overclocking, but better power consumption, and better fps with no need to oc). AM3 isn't really going anywhere for an upgrade path either, whereas with 1155 (intel) you could always throw an i5 or i7 in down the road if required.

This is from an older review, but it has an i3 2100 substantially better than an x4 955.
