Default what to get? AMD Opteron or Intel Duo Core

Now hear me out.

Id like to upgrade soon but im not sure which route to take.

I can get a new CPU and RAM:

AMD opteron 170 and OCZ/Gskill 2gb which could cost around £160-£180 for both.

Or i can get a new CPU, MOBO, RAM and prob new OS too:

Gigabyte GA_P35_DS3R £90
G.skill memory £80
Intel Cpu E6750 £130/Q6600 £190
?New OS? £60

Total: £280 or £340 (depending on cpu)

My current specs are:

DFI lanparty UT-Ultra-D
AMD 3700+ san diego
Cheap 1gb crap ram
Sapphire X1900XT
Hiper 580 watt psu
Windows XP home OEM

What makes more sense?

PS Im very interested in crysis.
