AMD as it is cheaper, Phenom 955 if budget allows, but otherwise can go with a cheaper processor to upgrade in the future.
i5 750 and Phenom 955 are really for those going for high end PC builds for gaming as they are big power for good price, but for a bit of gaming they are more than you need
If you look to the 'New build for £300-400' thread you will see some suggestions for a budget AMD build
can u point me to this thread please ?
what would be a good mobo from this list to run with
a AMD Phenom II X4 955
