Advice on what PC to choose

I am trying to decide between 2 pc options and wondered if anyone would help. I use my pc almost exclusively for playing online games such as World of Warcraft, Battlefield2, etc. My two options are:

Intel Pentium 4 processor 650 (3.4GHz, 2MB cache, 800MHz) supporting Hyper-Threading Technology
Intel 915P chipset motherboard with PCI Express, 1Gb LAN, dual channel DDR & Hyper-Threading support
1GB DDR2 533
250GB Serial ATA hard drive with 8MB buffer
256Mb ATI Radeon X800GT PCI Express graphics
19" Viewsonic VX912 pure digital DVI TFT monitor (12ms response)
Sound Blaster compatible 6 channel audio
Creative Inspire P5800 5.1 speakers

OR this:

AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+ processor
NVIDIA nForce 4 motherboard
1GB dual channel DDR RAM (PC3200) 400MHz (2x512MB)
200GB Serial ATA hard drive with 8MB buffer
256Mb ATI Radeon X800GT PCI Express graphics
19" Viewsonic VX912 pure digital DVI TFT monitor (12ms response)
NVIDIA 7.1 channel surround sound audio (on-board)
Creative Inspire P5800 5.1 speakers

They are both the same price in the deal on offer. Is the AMD version better for gaming? Sorry, no further spec details available on the motherboard or other parts except that what is listed.

Any help appreciated
