    Well first off Hi and Welcome to Techspot :wave:

    1) What is your budget for your it your new custom built computer?

    2) Currently intel has the better processers, sad because im an AMD fan but i have to say go with an intel core2duo.

    3) What games do you play as this will factor in the graphic card?

    4 what country do you live in so we can find you an e-tailer to get you the parts?

    5) be sure to ask any questions even if how ever insignificant they sound.

    If you pay your own electricity bill I would advise you to buy an AMD processor as I believe they have a better performance to watt ratio than Intels.
    If you have tons of money then get a Core 2 Duo like CrossFire851 said.

    $1000 is my budget

    I wanna pay around $1000 but I will pay extra if it is needed I just will need to save up a bit more and I don't pay my electricity bill so it doesn't matter to me
    But I would like an AMD but if intel is better I will go with them or would AMD come back over intel if so I will wait

    If you ran either cpu nonstop for 6 hours a day your bill would probably be paying less then $2 a month. I don't think thats to big of a deal, and on top of that the core 2 duo's do use less energy.

    It is GDDR3 but I agree, it's a helluva lot better, not to mention cheaper.
