They're both good, I believe that C2D would have a slight performance lead over the Turion. Buy that Turion would likely make that up since it has an extra gig of ram. Plus the integrated gpu is a little better so games would look nicer. SO I guess I would lean towards the AMD model myself.

Integrated GPUs do a bit more than just play games nicer, they save the system RAM so that the computer does not steal it for the display of the computer.
