The idea was to sink that price difference into a bit better mobo and video card. Would the Intel chip make that much of a difference?

See yourself: http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/186?vs=288

That's AMD fastest quad-core, the 3.5GHz Phenom II X4 970 ($180) vs Intel's Core i5-2500 ($210). Pay particular attention to the games FPS difference.

Considering how much you're investing in your build, I definitely wouldn't skimp on the CPU Wink
