I like the price of the first one, but I dont know how the turion compares to the intel, and I know the 8600 is better than the 2600, because they're both ddr3, will the performance difference be worth the extra $
Which would you go for? Also if anyone has any other suggestions about systems, the budget is not much higher than 1600 including tax, and I would PREFER a ddr3 video card, and even an 8700GT if possible (i havent really been able to find any systems with the 8700GT, aside from a toshiba with a weak 1.8 ghz cpu)
I think I would go with the Asus G1. The Core2 is much better than the Turion and worth the extra money. As for the last option, the actual manufacturer is MSI who is a rather large name in the motherboard and graphics card sector. They have a decent following in notebooks as well. It's just that you end up dealing with cyberpower and I've heard a lot of mixed reviews about them. Also check out the Dell Inspirons and Vostros as well as the HP DV series.
