Generally for gaming all of the current intels are kicking the current wave of AMDs. Exceptions are AMD fusion CPUs for cheaper notebooks w/o a discrete video card. You probably want an intel build. And if the i3 gets slow over time you can drop an i5 inthe same MB and get a large performance improvement. With AMD CPUs you'd be at teh top of the line overclocked just trying to match the i3.
