Well, typically, I would say AMD is better for gaming... But the Pentium D may be a good choice... Are they around the same price?

Conroe is going to be incredible, I'd wait for that.

If it's for gamming, and your not bothered about future proofing, just for games right now, go the Athlon. If your looking at 2 years down the line, go the Intel. AMD might compare far superior right now, but when Multi-threaded and longer 64bit coded games come out, the pentium D might be a better option.

What Pentium D is it? 8xx, 9xx something else?

In all seriousness though, your better waiting on the Conroe if your current setup can do you the now.
