Technically, if your installing a custom Rom the only different between the two phones are the ram.
Since the sensation can be clocked to 1.8ish, you can buy a bigger battery, you can port the amazes camera software.

The amaze will be a lot smoother over all though, since it does have more ram.
I would get an Amaze, there is no point in having a million roms, you only need a few good ones.

but the RAM (extra 256) really makes that much of a diff? because by looking at the beginning of your comment, i was sure U R going to say - get the sensation. Then U mentioned the RAM as the decisive factor.

With the custom ROM, I'm pretty sure the Sensation will be just as smooth (if not smoother) as the Amaze

256mb will make quite a big difference, the stock sensation Rom is a lot more laggy than the stock amaze Rom is, and they're practically the same thing. If not less "stuff" on the sensation.

So unless you can't handle not flashing a Rom every day, get the amaze.
Even with underclocking to 1.2ghz my phone is still smooth, and you get the battery life of the sensation.

Now of course, everyone here will be biased towards the amaze. And if you ask the sensation people they'd probably say the sensation.
It all comes down to your personal taste, I was in the same position as you. But I chose the Amaze, and I don't regret it at all.

If you can, go into a T-Mobile store and test them out.

And btw.. If you plan on buying the Amaze, its free right now on T-Mobile.com with new activation or upgrade till Sunday. If you want the online pricing and are upgrading, call tmobile and ask for the retention department.
