Default Comparison - Which will be better?

System 1

Processor - AMD AM2 X2 Dual Core 64 4200+ AMD64 Bit Technology
Mother Board - SLI Ready Mother Board
Memory - 1024MB (1GB) PC533 533MHz DDR2 Ram
Hard Disk Drive - 250GB SATA2 7200RPM Hard Disk Drive
Graphics - Twin NVIDIA Geforce 6800XT 256MB DDR3 PCI Express 16X Graphic card running in SLI Mod
Sound Card - 7.1 Channel Digital Audio onboard (Integrated)
DVD/DVD DVDRW - 16X Dual Layer DVDRW +/-

System 2

Processor - AM2 X2 Dual Core 4600+ socket AM2 AMD64 Bit Technology
Mother Board - Asrock
Memory - 1024MB (1GB) PC533 533MHz DDR2 Ram
Hard Disk Drive - 250GB SATA2 7200RPM Hard Disk Drive
Graphics - NVIDIA Geforce 7600GS 256MB DDR3 PCI-E Graphic card
Sound Card - 7.1 Channel Digital Audio onboard (Integrated)
CD/DVD DVDRW - 16X Dual Layer DVDRW +/-

Now I haven't got a clue which one I should go with. One thing I would like to know is if one 6800xt is better than a 7600gs? and will running in SLI surpass it anyway?

Also is it a big drop in perfomance in terms of the slower processor?

Cheers

there is no big drop in performance in going with a slower processor. a amd 3000 can handle anything. i think the 7600gt is better then both of thoses. a amd 3800 x2 can handle anything too.
in am2 dont u need pc800 ram?

other then that why dont you look into a intel core 2 dual?
