The phenom II is the better overall choice, but don't expect to upgrade it later. If you don't like changing boards and want to upgrade later, get an H77 or Z77 board and go with Intel.

What AM3+ boards will support future AMD CPUs into 2014 H77/Z77 will not support Intels next generation due this year.
But yes the 965BE is better now and will be in future most likely even more so.
