Should I go with an AMD or an Intel processor for my new computer?

Q: I’m building my first computer and I was wondering which CPU would be a better choice. An AMD Phenom X4 9950 with an MSI Mobo or and Intel Core 2 Duo E8500 with an Asus mobo. This computer will be used for mostly media, web design, World of Warcraft, and Spore.
