I would go with the first one, for the RAM. that will decide a lot more about wat your system can do than the E6600... OC the 6400 and make up for it. (but then I do not know a whole lot about the new INTELS yet) but by looking... #1

Edit: after looking... you COULD get the E6600, then buy some RAM later... but I still think #1

i agree with nukem on the slection cause of the RAM.

but the video card, ati never relaly had any god drivers for them, plus teres no Sm3 support, which wil help in alot of todays games.

for $125 you can get a HIS X1600XT which has SM3 support, plus a great stock cooler so you can oc it better.

EDIT: doh! forgot the link

I would not go with rosewill... it's Newegg's generic brand and I have not many good stories about their parts. but I still say number one, with a better PSU. say and ANTEC or Enermax or Coolermaster...

G.Skill, OCZ, Kingston, Corsair

not a bad PSU, but when you look for one, you want to look at the +12V side. this one has 19A, which isn't bad, but the higher you can get the better. but it'll do if you tight on budget.
