What is your budget and whats the cost of each of those combo's?
we can possibly get better performance from a system if we know your cash limits :)

I am guessing you will be running Windows7, the AMD system seems to be the better choice.

also with a little luck you also might be able to unlock the other two cores of the CPU to make it a 4x; however, there is NO guaranty that it will work. Research AMD core unlocking.

Thing is, if Op's budget allows him to buy say a 955, then I'd rather buy him a 955 than hope I could unlock a dualcore/triple chip,
but as for the core unlocking, any board with a sb710 or higher chipset will allow him to try, I have an AsRock plate myself, cheaper and as effective on a budget

In addition, the AMD build can come with a GTS450? Much better gaming card then the 5670.

Do you have a PSU? If yes which one? And all you need is Case, CPU, Motherboard, RAM and GPU?
