I want to build a new system for gaming (its a low to mid range).
I'm confused between two setups (mobo/cpu combination):
1) msi g31 mobo with Intel E5300 (wolfdale).
2) Biostar MCP6PB M2+ (nvidia 6150) with AMD Athlon 7450 X2 (Kuma).
So please tell me which is better knowing that the price of the two setups is the same ($5 difference).
vga: EVGA GT 240 1GB DDR5.
Memory: 2GB DDR2 800MHZ Kingston.

Number two. The power difference probably isn't that big, but the AMD build can support current CPUs while the Intel cannot.
