But if i overclocked the 955 a reasonable amount do you think it would be way better than the i3-2100?
if reasonable you mean slightly? no.
quite a bit to match the performance? yes.
also you can upgrade the cpu on an intel set up, with an AMD build you will be pretty much topping out performance wise. and as much as AMD folks are getting excited about the Llanos, the cpu side; which is going to be the piledrivers when they come out, still cannot compete with any intel offering.
