Dang harley, you sure know how to spend some money!

The 3.0Ghz w 1MB Cache and 800MHz FSB would be the better option.
System specs? Lets just get down to it people:

My penis is bigger than yours.

ive seen mixed reviews about the prescott chips. some places say they offer good performance over the northwoods but other places say depending on the type of app running either could come out on top and the prescotts run much hotter which will probably put a limit on how much overclocking youll be able to do with them. also since theyre new theyre a little overly expensive you could wait a while and end up getting probably a faster processor for less.

I had the same problem when I upgraded to my 2800+ Barton Core. Just install a larger power supply, atleast a 420. I have a 500 and its enough just as an example
