I'd take the Samsung F1 or Segagte 7200.11 over both the others. Processor choice would depend on usage and budget. Assuming Case, PSU and Memory and rest all same SuicideSilence March 31, 2008 7:58:39 PM Well the 2nd build has a better cpu. but the first build has a better HDD. get the 2nd build with the segate/samsung hdd, and everything else is the same correct?
