Ok I know there will be alot of Intel bashing, but why im choosing to get an Intel is a very long boring story so just tell me if this a good deal.

Yeah, good computer, i reccomend it. Look at my sig. Its a great computer, though no overclocking for you. And as for the upgradability for the video card, yeah its possible. and thats a good card. Its a good overall system. Go for it, you can get better for making it yourself, but thats a different story, And this if this computer is suited to your needs, then go for it.

An MDG will have bad cooling, and since p4's are known to be hot, it will be hard to oc, with out the motherboard and cpu not booting the dos, since they will restrict booting once the cpu goes over a certain temp.

in shortyoull need lots of aftermarkter fans and a great knowledge of overclock p4's since it will be locked, due to the intel motherboard.
