Pure gaming. Specifically EQ2 which is graphic card and ram intensive.

What are the advantages of taking that/those builds over the build I chose?

Cut me slack, keep in mind I've been out of the technology loop for a while now, I dont see where that processor couldn't outperform anything already listed, yeah its older because its socket 939, but would these other builds outperform it?

Yes they would. I'm not sure on the AM2 build, but the C2D build sure can.

If you can't get the extra money for 2gb, you can get the Abit IB9 mobo for $75AR and this RAM:

Corsair TWIN2X2048-5400C4 2GB Kit DDR2-667 XMS2-5400 Xtreme Performance Memory Retail at ZipZoomfly

(pretty much my build)
