Default Critique 2 Gaming Builds Sub $900 (AMD and Intel)

Critique my AMD Build and my Intel Based build. Wanting to spend Sub-870$. This is mostly for gaming and work which will be done on a virtual machine. Also this is my first full build if that matters.

I will be going SLI in the next month or so when i buy another gtx 460 also.

I don't need OS I have a 7 64bit Ult. and I dont need a monitor/peripherals.

Intel Build First:
DVD Drive: Newegg.com - LITE-ON Black 24X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 8X DVD+R DL 24X DVD-R 6X DVD-RW 12X DVD-RAM 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-R 32X CD-RW 48X CD-ROM 2MB Cache SATA CD/DVD Burner - Bulk - CD / DVD Burners
HDD - Newegg.com - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, LED LCD TV, Digital Cameras and more!

RAM/Case Combo - Newegg.com - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, LED LCD TV, Digital Cameras and more!
Motherboard/CPU Combo - Newegg.com - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, LED LCD TV, Digital Cameras and more!

Total : $827.48 w/ shipping and $70 Rebates available.

AMD Build:
PSU/Case - Newegg.com - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, LED LCD TV, Digital Cameras and more!
DVD DRIVE - Newegg.com - LITE-ON Black 24X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 8X DVD+R DL 24X DVD-R 6X DVD-RW 12X DVD-RAM 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-R 32X CD-RW 48X CD-ROM 2MB Cache SATA CD/DVD Burner - Bulk - CD / DVD Burners
HDD- Newegg.com - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, LED LCD TV, Digital Cameras and more!
GPU - Newegg.com - EVGA 768-P3-1362-TR GeForce GTX 460 (Fermi) Superclocked 768MB 192-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
Mobo/CPU - Newegg.com - Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, LED LCD TV, Digital Cameras and more!
RAM - G.skill 4gb 1600

Total : $838.52 with $60 rebate

My questions is that I believe that the AMD's PSU/Case and GPU are superior to the Intels build, but the Intels CPU is better.
I want to know which build is more future proof and whats the performance difference between the AMD and Intel in gaming.
