well in that case i would suggest going with the intel build as the i5 is a far superior cpu with masses of OC potential.
and it will be a much better platform for future upgrades

Hmmm, Thats what I was thinking. And The mobo is much better than the amd build. Do you think the R7770 is enough though? ;)
