BTW, i dont OC. and the systems have exactly the same parts besides the motherboards. The Phenom build costs $687 while the Intel build costs $637. The Phenom is a 2.2Ghz Quad Core and E8400 is faster but is Dual core. The system will be used for only gaming and Internet usage. Everyone tells me to go Intel but i dont see the problem with AMD(plus there HSF's are a lot easier to put on). I priced both systems with a 3870, Corsair 550W PSU, Corsair XMS2 RAM and the same WD HDD 160GB. The motherboard for the AMD system is a Asus M3A32-MVP Deluxe and for the Intel system the motherboard is a Asus P5Q Pro.
