Age old.

Intel best performance (as of now)
AMD better performance for price.

Your choice though, it's mostly about preference.

I would change the mobo to a Asus P8P67 Pro with some Corsair Vengeance RAM.

also make sure you got a good cooler if you want to OC.

As for gfx if you can afford it get a 560 ti as a 460 hawk talon is nearly as fast as a 470 so a 560 ti hawk would be slightly faster.
