i personally would get the AMD one...cuz you can upgrade your 3500+ to a kick-intels-ass FX-55 later, since it uses the same sockets....

Second one looks good.

Alvino, stop double posting. Click the EDIT button if you want to add that. This just wastes space on the CF forums, and is annoying.

Yeah the 2nd one seems to have better specs.

the AMD 3500+ is i reality a bit faster than the Pentium 4 one

A better video card (in my opinion) is included in the 2nd

Plus a better sound card too

Good luck

lol go with the first one even though the p4 is ready to be replaced. You get a better hard drive and video card with the first one.

Actually 6800's aren't that much, I've seen them ranging from $260-300. Same with the 9800XT. But you're still right about the hdd space, and the p4ee costs a lot more than the 3500 so if these are the same prices then wow.
