If gaming is what you are after this will beat it. Faster in most other things as well. Total is $1079.89 with $45 in mail in rebates.

Antec 902:

Sapphire Toxic 5850:

Corsair 550VX:

4gb GSkill Ripjaws 7-8-7-24:

Gigabyte P55A UD4P:

i5 750 :

CoolerMaster Hyper 212 Plus:

Even at slower stock speed and with fewer cores the better architecture of the i5 makes it faster in just about every real word application. Thuban is faster in a few synthetics and that is about it. The i5 also keeps scaling as you overclock and the Thuban hits a wall around 3.4-3.6 and stops improving. Even the Phenom II 9xx series are better gaming CPUs.

I am no fan boy either way but at $200 i5 wins. AMD is great for budget systems. I am building my sister an X3 440 system right now.
