^ That's a big chance to take though.

The Athlon will perform better in multi-threaded games, but and any game that uses enough resources to max either processor is probably going to be GPU limited anyway...

edit: Looks like it's a tossup on which one performs better. The Athlon wins overall, though:
(edit: that's a 550 btw, but I wouldn't expect a 555 to be very different.)

Athlon II 635--CM Hyper 212+ ║ GIGABYTE GA-790XTA-UD4 ║ Powercolor HD5770 ║ 2x2GB G-Skill Ripjaws Blue ║ Antec Truepower New 550W ║ NZXT M59 ║ Win7 Pro 64-bit ║ Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB
