Gaming rigs

I picked up Empire: Total War the other day. It's pretty awesome, if you like that sort of thing, which I totally do.
Been playing on a laptop, but it's a bit depressing.
So, I've been looking at a gaming rig, for around a grand.
A quick bit of reading last night, and a mail to some excellent geek friends, and it became pretty obvious what I needed.

It became pretty obvious that I needed the nVidia GTX 295 was the correct video card choice.
But, which chip? Phenom II is cheap, and more energy efficient. i7 is way faster, but costs more. Which to buy?
I suspect I'll end up with the Phenom.
