Which would you recommend, all else being equal, with a future SLI or crossfire upgrade path:

Phenom 955
Gigabyte GA-790XTA-UD4
XFX 5850

$602


OR


i5 750
P7P55D-E Pro LGA 1156
Gigabyte 460 GTX

More about intel build
  1. if u r not goin to upgrade the cpu in the future get the i5
    because all intel sockets are goin to be replaced in 2011
    but am3 will still live and cpu's for am3 will still come out
  2. Any rationale?
  3. i mean that intel is ripping off there customers by making a new socket every year and don't make new cpu's for there older sockets
    while amd's am3 socket will still have new cpu's coming out. for ex: AMD IS goin to release bulldozer (new cpu) next year.
    plus that when amd releases a new socket am3+(or what ever it's name may be) the newer cpu's will still work on the am3 socket.
