Thanks for the replies. The only reason I was even considering the 2nd option was for the extra CPU power of the Quad, but with the better motherboard on the first bundle I'll go with that and upgrade my CPU at a later time.
The reason I don't go with the Quad and Gigabyte board is because they're offered in separate bundle deals. I'll probably just wait for the prices on the Ph2 Black Editions to drop and upgrade my CPU then.
Can anyone tell me what kind of increase in performance I'm going to experience going from an Intel P4 2.4GHZ Single Core CPU with some outdated 2G of memory? I know my GPU is severely bottlenecked due to my system but I do manage 15-20FPS in a 25man WoW raid. (Aion basically unplayable).
I know the 4850 is strong enough to run most games at max FPS. Will that AMD II x2 240 bottleneck my GPU? It will be overclocked as well hopefully to 3.4-3.5GHZ.
Being mainly an Intel guy, I need to admit right off the bat that you should probably take the following advice with a grain of salt; plus this is all off the top of my head...
Switching to that AMD processor should give you a dramatic increase in performance. The P4 you speak of is pretty old (or at least not as high-end) even as far as P4's go. I've got a 3.2GHz P4, and the jump to a duo or quad core from it is pretty evident immediately.
You'll probably still bottleneck the GPU, but not nearly as much. Overclocking your CPU a little bit should even things out nicely and give you great all-round performance and it's definetely something you should consider.
