Critique my AMD Build and my Intel Based build

Critique my AMD Build and my Intel Based build. Wanting to spend Sub-870$. This is mostly for gaming and work which will be done on a virtual machine. Also this is my first full build if that matters.

I will be going SLI in the next month or so when i buy another gtx 460 also.

I don't need OS I have a 7 64bit Ult. and I dont need a monitor/peripherals.

My questions is that I believe that the AMD's PSU/Case and GPU are superior to the Intels build, but the Intels CPU is better.
I want to know which build is more future proof and whats the performance difference between the AMD and Intel in gaming.
