The monitor's resolution is 1080P right? Heres a Intel+Nvidia build:

Core i5 750 + EVGA P55 SLI: $280AR: http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?Ite...

Seagate 500GB + Nzxt Gamma: $80: http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?Ite...

XFX 650W Modular PSU: $65AR: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

EVGA GTX460: $180: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Win 7 + 4GB OCZ DDR3 1600: $160AR: http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?Ite...

Samsung Burner $18: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

You get slightly better performance, higher quality parts, and SLI support.

If you want AMD go ahead, but the fact is the Intel build is better performing than tyour AMD one for $100 less, I think that classifies as bang for the buck.

Heres an AMD build since you want one:

Phenom 955 + MSI 5830: $280 AR http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?Ite...

ASUS 790X Board: $70AR: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Seagate 500GB + Nzxt Gamma: $80: http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?Ite...

XFX 650W Modular PSU: $65AR: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Win 7 + 4GB OCZ DDR3 1600: $160AR: http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?Ite...

Samsung Burner $18: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Total: $673AR

The MSI 5830 is better than the XFX, it runs cooler and if you want, OCs MUCH higher. Lifetime warranty isn't worth $40.
