And a cd burner and dvd rom, this was without microsoft works.

Came out to 1600$

Is there anything you would seriously change in either of these comps?? I plan to overclock just a little bit.
im an amd man myself. but i reckon the intel system seems a little faster IMO. perhaps its the 800mhz fsb.. i dunno.
the amd system is very similar to my current setup and it runs like a dream.

and while some people have problems with the nForce chipset...I've been running mine for 2 months now and I have no problems whatsoever. (epox 8rda+)
