I figured I should change from Pentium D to AMD Athlon X2
Since online customization from companies like Gateway and Compaq/HP SUCK!!!, and Dell doesn't do Pentium D, I have done the following:

VERSUS the specs I posted before of a Dell.
I was going to buy a Power Supply as well, but we (with the CompUSA guy too) decided it was better to go with a 2-year Warranty (which we probably would have gotten anyway) ... and then that way, if the Power Supply failed or something, we'd have coverage on our CPU.
I will upgrade the Power Supply eventually if I get some money. Meanwhile I will back up anything important on my Hard Drive to an external just in case :-p
How do you guys rate the change? It cost a little bit cheaper too.
