well im gonna be honest with ya.

the AMD is a bad buy.
the intel is even worse lol.

id say the intel is overpriced by like $800
and the AMD by bout $500 - 600

you could buid a monster of a gaming machine for that price

i know for £600 english money i could get

a C2D e6600
2GB 800Mhz RAM
8600GTS
320Gb hardrive

jus for the basics n e way and that would smoke both of those pc's put together
