I'd combine options 1 and 2, and build from scratch but use Win7. If you can't afford Win7, you can always pirate it and buy it later when you're able.

Intel is better for gaming on average, but there's lots of exceptions for that. My preference is always Intel when building a gaming rig, but you can do so with AMD if you're that determined to save a little money.
I wish I had the time to put an ultimate gaming PC to use, but it would just sit and collect dust due to kids and business booming.

What would you do with 3-400 bucks? It's not about money, I just don't want to waste something that I will never put to full use.
