I would go with this CPU http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N8...
It's twice as fast as the Intel One, you would need to change the motherbaord if you did go with the Quad Core AMD. It's only like $10 extra.

don't listen to nevie82, most motherboards have a built in graphics card thats as good if not better then any CPU will offer, would you rather pay the same price for twice the much speed and performance. You don't need to buy a dedicated graphics card, just get a motherboard with one built in.
