What should I get between the core i5 750 / core i7 860 / phenom II x6 1055. Between those, which would be a good performance/price choice?

I am going to add that I would like to know the answer considering that I want a processor that will do more than 2 years from now before I need to change it again.

The price choice will almost always be with the AMD chip.

When I upgraded back in December, I got the top of the line from AMD, a good mobo and RAM for the price of a middling Intel chip.

Well from what I've heard, the X6 1055 from AMD is almost the same as the i7 860 but for about 80$ cheaper.

According to this chart at PassMark, it's significantly faster.

Almost a thousand points higher.

Well I just finish reading an article that was saying that the Phenom II x4 955 and 965 where better for gaming than the 1055. It's also a cheaper solution as well to take in consideration.

well..price wise AMD will win no doubt about that and performance wise they're definitely not bad either. Intel chips r way over priced.

The Phenom II 1090T is better than the ones you listed, and comes at the same price as the I7 860.
