Both of these will handle just about anything. What do you use your computer for?

How much will these cost?

Its pretty much for gaming, and lots of multi tasking

The MagicMicro is 2800 and the vesta is 3000-3200

I own the AMD CPU listed in the first one, so that being said, get the Intel one if you want pure speed. The extra price premium will be worthwhile.
