May I ask why you arent going for the new 939 pin motherboard and CPU which will last you longer? i.e Venice core? (I think?)

kage, right now I don't really have the $$ to spend on anythnig new, whether it be computer or upgrading. I have to make best with what I have. So its one or the other ya know what i mean

dj-chris, you're right. i thought about it and you cant really compare 32-bit and 64-bit. two differnt worlds.

Computer #2 is better because it matches what you need.
