I will also say the i5, make sure you get a quad core one and not a dual core one

On Socket 1156, that was a problem. On Socket 1155, all i5's are quad core parts (with no hyperthreading). i3 processors are the dual core models (now).

i5 is better, but if you are planning to OC you do need to ensure you have the 2500k.
I am also an AMD fan really.

Depends on what you're doing. For gaming, the AMD beats Intel, for anything else, get the Intel. If you're on a budget, get the AMD. There's not really a better CPU. It all comes down to one's preference.
