The Athlon for sure. And it will not be that big of a bottleneck.

Its not as easy as switching to a new athlon x2. You'll be switching chipsets as well, and need to reinstall all the parts. The athlon will be faster between the two, but have you looked at other options as well? And what is your budget?
