If you go for AMD, please PLEASE don't get that ECS board if you think about overclocking (although the Core 2 Duo rig is much better). Also, why did you pick a cheapo cooler for the AM2 rig?
Hmm, that doesn't sound too much over my spending limit for the c2d (if I get the 2gb ram)

And what is wrong with the ECS board? And I could just get a typhoon for like 10-15 dollars more, I didn't think the AC64 was a "cheapo". What about the Asus M2R32-MVP board? (Sorry for all the questions )

Edit: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813128017 is that the same motherboard you posted? A lot less expensive here..

ECS just has no good reputation for overclocking. Most ECS boards are crappy overclockers. The ASUS likely would be better.

I made that comment about the coolers since you pick a different cooler for the Intel rig (a high end, expensive $50 cooler) than for the AMD rig. If you want to compare fair, you should include the same, or similar, coolers (like the Freezer 7 Pro for the Intel rig).

However, personally, I'd pick the core 2 duo, with the Tuniq, and 2GB RAM.

Also, the 750W Silencer is a nice PSU, but why so much power?? The 610W version is more than enough.

Well I was thinking 750 for future upgrades such as the next gen cards and more HDs, etc etc.

But you seem pretty knowledgable, if I run a single card set up, should I be good for awhile, what about dual?

With a single card, the 610W PC Power & Cooling will be just fine. With dual cards, you'll need the 750W version.

Alternatively, you can opt for the 610W for now, and add a FSP BoosterX for a second card when you add it.

Also, SLI/Crossfire only makes sense when you have at least a resolution of 1600x1200 or 1680x1050. Thus a 20" or larger monitor.

ECS has released some very OCable MB... they are very new to the OCing game so...I'd still I'd opt for the Asus in a heartbeat!
