Go C2D don't waste your money on an AMD unless you wait for K8L.

Hmmm, the problem is that I don't live in a very big town and there are only two computer stores, both of which also aren't that big and to buy a new computer we'd have to go to the nearest city, about a hundred kilometres away, and find a computer store that sold these better parts.
Also just for you guys I think 2000 AUS is about 1500 US.

But if you were given the choice between those two computers and this other one (from another computer store), so thats a choice of the three, which would you pick?

The other computer of a similar price is thusly:
Intel Core 2 Duo E 6300
1 Gb memory.
320GB Hard Drive
DVD Burner
19" Widescreen LCD monitor
GeForce 256Mb Video card, speakers, keyboard and remote.
It comes with windows Media Center as opposed to Windows Professional that the other two have.
So...which would you guys choose?

It doesn't? ah foo...
That's all it says for the Video Card option.
Direct and exact working is...
GeForce 256MbVideo Card.
Unless that is a missprint and it means it has a GeForce 256...which would be unlikely because most stores proof read these things, but I guess it may be possible.
