What OS do you plan on using? What games are you looking to play? Are you going to OC? You're adding a dedicated video card right?

XP, upgrading to 7 when it comes out
Cod4 and 5 on high
No
Ofc.

If I get the second one, I'm upgrade my XFX 8600 gt XXX to a 9800 of some sort, maybe even one of GTX series cards'

I'd say second one because of the motherboard. If the motherboard was an Asus or something i'd go with the first.

Edit: if you're willing to the intel Mobos a chance go with the first.

I would go with the first one if both is the same price. I have Intel boards and its pretty good. I had one for about 2 years, and its still working, its my first computer that i worked on too, so its been pretty abused.

Asus boards are pretty sweet, but my friends one caught on fire, believe it or not. But the board still works, and thats the good thing. Its also an nvidia board, which i tend to have bad luck with on certain things, but they are still working so far.

Performance wise, i think the Intel one is better.
