Should i stick with the AMD or INTEL, this pc is mostly for gaming, but also some different things, nothing major though, 80 percent for gaming, are all the parts compatible?, is there anything i should get differently?

i currently use a HP pc, with 1.2 celeron, 256 mem, 40 gig, integrated graphics, 20pfs on counter-strike, and im tired of lag that my computer brings me, and if ur a counter-strike and know about cal league, I wanna start playing in counter-strike leagues, but with this pc i cant do that =(

WeLL.. hope i get some responses and suggestions and help and what ever else you guys might say

Ready for a new CS computer, Dav1d

Stick with the AMD for sure, but I would recommend you try and get a better video card, perhaps by getting RAM without LED lights something more ordinary

good price for all this,

get AMD

get some Other RAM, or if u r in habbit of looking into the PC casing all the time rather than the monitor, then get this RAM (will be best for you). as then it'll save u from buying monitor, as u'll be looking into casing.
Intel Core2Quad 2.66Ghz 12MB L2-Cache
