    For a start, it would be great to know what you will be using your computer mainly for. Personally, I would go for the AMD one. Straight away. But if you let us know what you will be mainly using it for then we could look into it a bit more for you. :)

    It's not a good idea to have an uneven amount of memory modules with these systems.
