it is only $102 dollars. If the other is only $29 is it not worth the difference? If there is not much difference I can take that money to upgrade cpu or if it won't effect the performance too much

There's really no reason to get a Raptor right off the bat unless you just need the speed, and since you're on a budget, yes, you can put that money towards something else, like a better vid card, CPU, RAM, or mobo, which most likely matter more now.

ok how about this
http://www.ewiz.com/detail.php?p=A64-48CDBX&c=pw# new cpu best of the best

http://www.spartantech.com/product.a...pid=ST136403LC hard drive is still good but cheap

will this be better for what i need adds another $100 but that puts me right at about $1200

question on this though is this too much cpu for the vid card or for the ram and motherboard as well

cpu looks fine, but unless youve got a scsi setup, that hard drive isnt going to work.
