Yeah I can't comment on the effects of cache either but like I said before, either choice has its own strengths and weaknesses, whatever he chooses to go with will be fine I guess it's just a matter of personal preference.

What? You must be joking. After all the countless builds you've recommended that would be a disservice to yourself to buy a Dell. You have to build it yourself there's no other way to do it right in my opinion.

Personally I had to suffer through a P.O.S. Dell Dimension whose specs were P4 1.6 GHz, 256 megs of ram, 8 MB vid card, integrated sound, and 40 gig HDD for about 5 years and I lived through it. Of course I upgraded it and go it to 512 megs of ram and a Geforce 6200 GPU but it still sucked *** through a straw.

Trust me you'll only regret it later if you skimp and get a Dell.. seriously they use BTX mobos...
