Looks pretty solid. P-IV or AMD is your choice. There are good arguments for both. I wouldn't compensate and go with on board memory when given the choice of a good video card. There are a lot of good, solid, fast systems built on the AMD and the Axus motherboard. That is the Deluxe board you are going to use, correct?
3 different OS, so yep I\'m confused.
