Definitely the Intel processor. AMD has some pretty good mobile processors that have decent graphics cards for a better price than Intel, but since we are talking about building your own computer, then I would highly suggest getting the Intel.

The 'K' model you can easily overclock. Just get a board that facilitates overclocking.
