Core i3 2310 or amd phenom ii x6 in my circumstances?

Hello,
I'm planning on buying a new cpu. Here is my circumstances:

1. I've UPS, Operating System, Optical Drive, Keyboard, Mouse, NVIDIA 9400gt (I'm aware its too backdated but wont be changing in a year), 1366 x 768 res 19' LED.
2. My choice is between i5 2300/2310 which costs around Rs. 9000 (I'm aware 2500k is way better but it costs Rs. 3000 more which I cant afford) and amd phenom ii x6 (any, i can choic that. the and i need is i5 2300 or phenom ii x6).
3. If i go for amd, i've to buy a psu. but that wont be the case for i5 (9400gt consumes very less watt and i wont be connecting my dvd rw to make sure my 400watt psu runs it).
4. i'll be buying a motherboard too but i can take care of that and choose one which can be used in case i upgrade.
5. budget fixed. ans to the point requires
5. Budgt

  1. If your PSU runs the i5 it will run the Phenom II. You dont have any majorly power hungry parts there.
  2. What do you use your pc for?
