Go i5, it beats the 1090t by a fair bit in games and at 4.0ghz it will be bloody fast.
Get ready for a flame war, a wild fanboy appeared!

Let's take a look at some simple benchmarks, shall we?

1100T beats all i5's here

Even the 965 beats all the i5's here!

And here!

Cmon OP, this is a no brainer! A hexa core at 4.0 smokes everything else.

I believe that that your current setup will struggle a bit to push the 5970.

Option one (try and overclock you current CPU). May not be easy with that mobo and ram combo.

Option two: Get new AMD 890FX mobo and DDR3 1600 MHZ Ram, and after market CPU Cooler and unlock the other two cores on the 555 and overclock to 4GHz.

Option three: Get Core I5 760, P55 Mobo and DDR3 RAM, CPU cooler and overclock over 4GHz.

I would probably go Option 3 even if that means not buying the 5970 and putting that money towards the cost of new computer.
