In that case, definitely get the Core 2 Duo. Once again, here's the link

Plus those last two I think are really good at overclocking, if you're in to that. And yeah, I forgot to mention, though I've heard select good things from HIS cards, a Sapphire would probably be better because I've heard a lot of good about them and not too much for HIS. Grab a Sapphire X1650Pro
and it should be a good gaming machine. Don't worry about what I said for the RAM; try to get 2GB if at all possible. Some fast 1GB will get you by today, but 2GB is becoming gaming-standard more and more every day.
edit: And the links you posted still aren't working for me.
