AMD. The AMD is overpriced where ever you got these prices from though. It should around 140ish. Once you get up into mid 150 price range the 955 BE is sitting just a couple bucks north of it. I would look to use that chip instead.

Go AMD. I have a feeling the Q8300 would be slightly (very slightly) faster than the 925 after you OC the 2 chips, but AMD would give you a much better upgrade path compared to LGA 775.

raidur is spot on. even if the performance difference is negligable, its still better to have current gen hardware than last gen hardware.

AMD gives you more bang for the buck
