The AMD is the clear upgrade winner. But without including upgrading, what one is best?

Honestly, I wouldn't pick either one.
I'd get a true AMD motherboard (770, 785, or 8xx), and that 5770 with the athlon II X2 and THEN we have a potential winner.
cmon...? all these views and only 1 blank vote? I need help here
^ +1 NO to both... I would rather skip the 9500GT for now, get a better CPU + Mobo(785G/ 880G) and later on when I have the money, get a better GPU... For casual gaming, the onboard might hold on for somtime...
