Default Which computer is better value.

http://ankermann-pc.shops4ecommerce....ING+PC&pr=Njk5

I know they are both very good value but which is better value. Ive tryed looking up each part myself but Im not familiar with the most recent mobos and gpus since ive stopped buying pc mags and its hard to find decent reviews. If some one could work out very rough costs of the mobos, gpus, cpus and other costly equipment for me that would be AMAZING!! or basicly is the amd 6 core worth the 300 euro more.

EDIT: Im now a little confused. Ive been looking up the crosshair iv and in their setup they have a tri channel 6 gb ram setup, but the crosshair iv doesnt seem to support it, all the reviews and pics ive seen only have 4 ram slots for dual channel.

EDIT 2: Ive worked out the cost of both of the comps to be about the same or a bit more then buying the parts on their own, but I dont have to install the parts and I get 2 years warranty if I buy form them.

EDIT 3: Re EDIT 2 :P

Am I wrong in thinking a mobo with 4 dimms cannot run tri channel?

Default Re: Which computer is better value.

You're actually getting a lot more for the 200 euro price tag. The upgraded RAM, faster HD, better Video card as well as the noted CPU. I would personally go with the AMD build if you have the money, although the Intel build is good for the price tag. It's really up to on what you want. If you want to spend that extra money and get a really good PC, go with the AMD rig. If you're looking to save some money and still want a decent build, get the Intel setup.

Got a rough estimate of the 2 computers going by usual retail price?.
