Default For Gaming: AMD vs Intel

No need for a flame war.
Was looking at the AMD Deneb 965 BE

For 185$ from what I hear, it has great Price/performance ratios.

Anyone recommend anything else in the $185-200 Category range? I'm looking specifically for great Price/Performance.

Are the i5's THAT much better?

thanks
and happy thanksgiving =]

The Intel Core i5 750 beats the PII 965 across the board and is only slightly more expensive.

Newegg.com - Intel Core i5-750 Lynnfield 2.66GHz 8MB L3 Cache LGA 1156 95W Quad-Core Processor - Processors - Desktops

here are some benchmarks comparing the two. (note: lower is better for a lot of the benchmarks)
