Definitly go with the AMD if it's a gaming machine. AMD's are better for gaming. Plus, it overclocks well so you can get it to run at speeds of the more expensive processors, with the proper cooling of course.

now, think about the 2GB over 1GB. If its for gaming, i would take 2GB, so Intel for me. The processor doesn't make a drastic difference. But when the game needs to go into the page file, it will lag like no tomorrow.
