I3 540 or phenom II x4 955

I am not a gamer really but would like a good computer. I really am confused as to which i should buy because they are both in the same price braket and a lot of people say it is better to get intel.
Please help,

  1. the x4 955 is way better than an i3 540, but if you do not game or convert vids, you can use the 540 to give a polar bear a few xtra milliseconds on his melting iceberg, that's why i got mine, but the i3 is supposed to be about $40 less than the 955, but the i3 can more than hold its own performance wise, i convert vids regularly, and i am quite pleased
  2. whats wrong with me, why dont you just go for a athlon ii x3? it would be cheaper all round than the intel build
