The I5 is better performance wise but AMD is making the hexcore am3 compatible.

You answered your own question... AM3 will have Hex cores, so that platform will be more future proof.

For either build, I would switch your hard drive to either the Samsung Spinpoint F3 500GB or Seagate 7200.12 500GB hard drives for better performance.
