I would go with an i7 for anything engineering. They are 50% faster clock for clock in most intensive applications.

A Core i7 CPU and motherboard combo will also cost $200 more than the AMD setup. You will also have to figure in the extra cost of a comparable amount of DDR3 memory.

Truthfully, I think you'll do well with the Phenom build.

For your viewing pleasure:

Intel Core i7 920 - ASUS P6T Deluxe V2 - OCZ Gold 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 1600 Combo - $619.97
