    I really don't want to start another whose Daddy is bigger argument,so I am only going to speak in very generall terms.
    Basically,from what I have read (Applction speed tests and the like ;PC Modder MAg , etc)
    Intel is the Multi media , multitask ,machine to buy.
    Game play- AMD
    There really isn't going to be a significant and noticeable difference between machines at the level you are buying.
    So I recommend you go after the best Warranty and support you can get.

    Im not getting into the AMD, Intel argument either....but i would put a few more dollars into those PSUs...why spend 650+ and skimp out with those no name Power Supplies?

    Most people here are PC-savvy enough, that you can put the article here in text, rather than a bunch of links (that in some cases don't work!)
    e.g. AMD64/3000 S939
    or ATI Radeon 9800 Pro.

    And I agree with AtK Spade that both those PSUs are rubbish.
    Look for dual (=2) +12V rails, together minimum 30 Amp.

    Look in the CPU forum, plenty of similar posts there!
