If you want to buy a processor now, AMD will be better for gaming. BUT, if you want the BEST performance, wait for the Intel Core 2 (Conroe) (I think it comes out end of July). Check it out here how the Conroe kills the FX-62 (current best gaming processor). Again, if you want to buy now though, buy an AMD. Hope this helps

Buy an Intel Pentium M at the moment, or a Core Duo 2 at the end of July.
