Default Which of these PC's is better?

PC #1
AMD athlon 64 3400 socket 754
1GB RAM
nvidia 6200 AGP
AGP socket 754 motherboard
250gb hard drive
2 15-17inch crt monitors
Windows Home edition

PC #2
AMD athlon 64 3200 socket 939
ATI RADEON XPRESS 200 onboard video
1GB RAM
pci-ex 16 socket 939 motherboard
140gb hard drive
19 inch LCD monitor
Windows Media Center edition
TV tuner

So which PC do you think is better and by how much? Also, ratings on both would be appreciated. Thanks!!

I'd go with the first one, Windows MCR isn't that much over Home Edition, and the 6200 over integrated

The Socket 939 system definately, you could get that and then buy a nice PCI-e video card

the second one is better because the sockets are 939 and most cpus are gonna have that capability sooner or later and the mobo is better too.

pci xpress 16 > agp

Get PC#2 and take advantage of that PCI-Ex16 slot.

I wouldnt say its dead, if your all saying the 939 is more upgradeable because you can get SLI boards, you can get them for 754 as well.
