Thoughts on which combo is better bang for the buck or just better overall? This will be paired in my system with a Sapphire HD 4870 512MB GPU.

The mobo in the AMD combo is better, the Intel CPU is better. As far as gaming performance goes, those two processors will probably put out equal numbers. I personally would go for the AMD combo. Use the extra 70 to save up for a second 4870.
