haha i thought graphics guys opt for apple. i am an amd guy myself. in my limited opinion of intel wouldn't the dual core be the better option?
i think ram would be the more important than cpu speed for graphics?
i think the fsb is 500 for that chip not 800?

Apple for arcitecture? Nah, nearly all engineering/construction/building design programs are for Windows unfortunately.

I'd go with the 805.
