first, the phenom will be a btter option than an i3, the core i5 2500k is better than the phenom, if going with the 2500k will make you get crappy ram and motherboard go for the amd build, and for gaming both the phenom and the i5 will give you excellent performance, if i were in your position i would go with the AMD build and overclock it since you can get an aftermarket cooler and you are getting a good motherboard
