for gaming: Athlon 64's are better. get a socket 939 if you can, so it is more upgradable.

for multimedia: either an Intel 3.0/3.2, or if you can spend more, an Athlon 64 X2

The AMD system has a faster processor, a bigger hard drive, and a dual-layer DVD burner.

The difference in mobo's is also a consideration. FIC is an alright company (my mobo is an FIC), but I don't think that they overclock. While some here despise ASUS, I have read good reviews on their mobos.
