I would go with the AMD if you are the hardcore gamer you say. I think the mushkin memory is ok. It's not the greatest but you are on a budget. I see both systems are using Hitachi HDD's. Personal favorite or good experience with them ? If not I would recommend Westen Digital or Maxtor. Heard the Hitachi's corrupt/fail more then the other brands.

Well i did sum searching and found sum Geil Ultra series for 150. Is this any good for the price? http://shop3.outpost.com/product/384...H:MAIN_RSLT_PG

And about the Hitachi's Im running two of them right now and havent had any problems, but i will look into WD hard drives.

Why not Seagate's, they have the 5 year warranties now? I'm using a Seagate SATA and am extremely happy with it. Liz
