If you're not going to overclock than the AMD would be better.

they both have their advantages.

depends on what you're going to do to determine which is actually better for you.

Go with the Intel.

On stock air and voltage, you can overclock it a little and it will kick the AMD's butt. Also, purchasing a halfway decent intel board will allow you to upgrade to quad core CPU's in a little while when they are dirt cheap.

-on that note, if you wait til July 22nd, the prices will drop on Intel CPU's, so you can get a 2.6 ghz 6750 with a 1333FSB for that same price, or a quad core for $90 more.
