Intel Build Grand Total: $669 AMD Build + the Phenom™ II X2 560 Black Edition & Biostar A785G3 AM3 mATX combo from microcenter (http://www.microcenter.com/specials/promotions/AMDbundlePROMO.html ty batuchka ) Grand Total: $495 for comparison both systems will be using an XFX HD-577X-ZMF3 Radeon HD 5770 More about : system _tru_ December 12, 2010 9:13:51 AM huge gamble here though. on microcenter the Athlon™ II X4 640 is only 4$ cheaper in a combo. so i can either: a. get a straight quad with no L3 b. a POSSIBLE quad WITH L3 scorch December 12, 2010 1:34:35 PM With a choice between the two systems I would go with the Intel system.
