If all you do is game, then I would go intel seeing how you're looking at buying a new mobo anyway. Or, you can wait for PD which will be the next version of BD but it won't be released until later this year.

Good advice right here.

OP, I read through your thread, and I couldn't find what budget you're working with. For gaming and overclocking, I'd definitely recommend a 2500K build right now. Nothing wrong with going Bulldozer to learn (I'm an AMD fanboy at heart), but I think you'll be disappointed, or very underwhelmed, with its performance.
