The AMD Phenom II 955 is right on par with the Intel Q9550. They both beat each other out on several different benchmarks. I would of course go for the cheaper, the AMD. The Intel is $280 USD, while the AMD is $160USD.
However, you're willing to pay as much as a i7-920, one of the best CPU's out right now. If you had the budget to back up a more expensive LGA1366 board.
