    The Q6600 also costs more money which'd increase your overall costs. The Phenom provides lesser performance, but the availability of four cores is a great deal for the price. As for the bug, it's not a big deal. If you're willing to spend more, get the Q6600, but since you stated a specific budget, I suggested the previous AMD PC with some modifications.
    As for 'hurt feelings', it'd be a cold day in hell when my feelings could be hurt by the fact that one manufacturer has a better product than the other.

    no offence rage about the 'hurt feelings'!! I'm willing to pay a bit more if it means more performance! the pc also has a wireless device! AND the pocket media drive is 320 GB which for me is important because i like utting my photos and music etc into a mobile storage device so I can carry it around. so what better than this one! Agreed?

    You don't need to build it. Just take all the parts to a small shop or ask a friend. They'd build it for you for a small fee, or for free. But since you've already decided, that's that.

    This is why so many HP's are sold

    What I really mean by my quote, is that "if only users knew a little more, they'd build their own" (or have it built)

    Yeah it's a PIMP machine make sure to buy ESP for it if yu do get it.
    I work for HP and I can tell you the warranty is definatelly worth it.
