Help me decide, stick with Intel or switch to AMD?

I'm in a bit of a pickle here, IF I sell my mobo/cpu/ram for $300, I could get:

AMD 4400+
2GB (2x1GB) G.SKILL DDR500
For about $850-300=$550


I could sell just my cpu/ram for $150 and get:

Pentium D 930 Presler
2GB (2x1GB) Crucial Ballistix DDR2 667
For about $700-150=$550

So which should I do, considering the cost to me (my dad) will be the same $550 bucks, should I get a 4400+ and OC it to about 2.6 which is what most people get to or should I get the Presler which should hit over 4.2GHz......

Yo just stick with amd its the best been with AMD my whole life tried intel just once not even close of being satisfy.AMD baby
