Default Which One?

I am getting a new computer, and I would like to know which of the following you would recommend. The price is Canadian and I plan on getting a better graphics card, but besides that, which looks better to you?

The first more expensive computer has many more advantages such as dual core duo 2 and a higher bus speed. For thoose reasons i would say the first one

Yeah, I'd go for the first one. $100 difference, but worth it.

You will definitely have to upgrade the graphics, though. 7300GS turbocache... ::shudder::
