ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: I'm stuck using 32-bit OS due to compatibility with inventory control/pos software, chose the video card for dual monitor support, the power supply is way over kill but for the price and the rating on newegg I didn't see better, plus being modular will keep the case uncluttered. I'm always unsure of memory/motherboard compatibility so I chose from the suggested Bargain Build here on Toms.

As you can see I'm totally lost trying to insert links, help!
He already said he is limited to the 32bit version due to software compatibility issues.
I agree that for the price, AMD is the better choice. The AMD IGP supports dual monitors (one on DVI, the other on VGA), so you won't need a discrete graphics card with the AMD build either.
I also agree that you won't need the aftermarket cooler. Not needing those two things will let you get the X4 CPU, which you will no doubt appreciate because of the AV and other security software your business environment probably uses (or should be using).
Take a look at the really inexpensive Seasonic 80+ bronze PSUs in the 300W-350W range. They don't have PCIE power connectors, but you won't need one. They also only have a few cables, so you won't have a lot of clutter even though they aren't modular.
I'm having a little trouble getting to Newegg from work at the moment, but iirc those PSUs are <$45, some <$40.
