That first PC is very nice. Although, I'd do three things.

With the extra $300.00 that you very going to kick in.

1.) Upgrade from that 6600GT to a 6800GT

2.) Spend $25.00 and get a larger HDD. Seagate 250GIG SATA

3.) Pick up a mid-end PSU.

intel P4 = good for simple multi tasking

X2s = good for extreme multi tasking

AMD 64 = good for gaming

you're welcome. Didn't even thank me. How nice.




And yes, the processor is worth it. If you have it, oh my god. Multitasking, music, games, OH MY GOD.

That's all I gotta say.
