Check out this build:

i5-2500k @ $214.59

ASUS P8P67 Pro @ $180.96

4GB 1600 9-9-9-24 G.Skill Ripjaws X @ $47.28

XFX 750W 80+ Silver @ $112.88 - $20 MIR

LITE-ON Black SATA CD/DVD Burner @ 17.99

XFX Radeon HD 6950 2GB @ $274.05 - $30 MIR

HAF 912 @ $47.70

Total = $988.48 + 13% tax = $1116.98 - $50 MIR = $1066.98

I put that together a while ago. Get the HIS 6950 for $234 after MIR.

I plan on adding an SSD and a 2nd 6850 later on. Maybe more ram and a bigger case also.
Intel's i3-2100 is beating AMD quadcores in games. Your build is wildly obsolete.

This thread turned into intel vs. amd quite quickly
Another thing op should consider is that the mobo xd_1771 suggested is going to be compatible with am3+ which is going to use a different architecture which may trump or at least help catch up to what intel has to offer. So I guess it's op's choice
There are possible upgrades in the future for both builds.
The ones for amd may be cheaper though

But since the gpu is nvidia, I'd probably go with intel for sli support :/

You can run SLI hack on the M4A89GTD PRO/USB3
Should work decently
It will run at 8x-8x but that's not a problem till you run 6970/GTX 570 and above at high resolutions

Also with the 955 at the $130-$140 levels and able to OC up to the 970/975, both the latter CPUs are fairly irrelevant. The AMD build would still be the better budgeted/more expandable choice.

k so i added tax on a $1136 amd 1090T build and it came up to $1283.68 :'(

To keep it in budget, I'd go with a really good P67 board (say a UD4 or UD5) and an i3-2100.

That way, you'd have an upgrade path worth following - honestly, do you think bulldozer will be fully operational on an AM3 chipset? It'll be like Phenom II's on AM2+.

And to all of you talking about upgrading, I don't think I'll be upgrading for like 3-5 years. So SLI hack will do fine if its going to save me $$
