Either way you will be happy. However, be advised, AMD does have a new line of chips coming up which should offer better performance, and also may drive pricing on current tech down. Might want to hold off and see what they bring up as you may benefit more.

One of the guys at Microcenter that I go to quite often mentioned June 12th, but some other things are saying shipments should go out on June 20th. So unless there are delays...but keep your eyes open for it.

If nothing else, it may drive current prices down.
