It's evident to me that if ur just gaming, u can afford to make a choice of either camp. Even if ur enthusiastic in ur approach. Cash will often dictate ur choice, although primarily I try to stress to people (in this day'n'age) ur major purchase should always be the gfxcard for gaming. It makes little sense to dump a large portion of ur budget into cpu/mobo/mem and settle for a 4770, when u could get a 5870 and the balance can effectively make up the numbers.
Some1 with an i7 and a 4770 will do less well as a P35/E8400 and a 5870, for example.
Think the biggest decision maker is what else u do with the pc other than gaming.
Great read btw.
