PARTS PREFERENCES: Should I use an Intel or AMD Processor? I'm not sure, maybe you guys can help me... (if I were to get AMD, I'd get the Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition, and if I were to get Intel, I'd get the Core i7 920)

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: I already selected my RAM, GPU, motherboard, DVD drive and case (links below), but if anyone has any other suggestions, let me know.
If it were me, I'd drop the LGA 1366 in favor of LGA 1156 (i5 750 + P7P55D-E PRO). Throw in a 30GB Vertex SDD as OS drive, F3 500GB as backup/storage, a cheaper case, same GPUs & PSU. Why? The primiary goal is gaming, not video editing.
