whatever the top of the line x2 is will be closest but still be edged out by the 4600

Well i thk you made up your mind you want amd but even at stock a e21xx or e45xx would smash the fastest amd. How much cheaper are you going to get the amd you need to ask yourself that to save 50-100 do you wanna lose 25-50% performace of what you could of had.

pentiums may be listed as more expensive than C2D's because not all e-tailers update their product lists that often, and older listings clutter up their pages.

it was once that price when those proc's were new, they just never dropped the price.....chances are if you tried to buy one they would be out of stock

Both are ~$200 systems. The Intel system will have slightly better processing performance, but will fall behind in graphics. Of course, Intel's IGP I think should be enough for what you say the main uses of the system will be, but If you will ever want to comfortably game on that thing, you're going to have to invest on a discrete card (which one will depend on what you want from it). The AMD system will fall a bit behind when it comes to processing power (nothing too drastic though and you probably won't notice it) but the IGP is much better and can even do some light DX9 gaming; you also have the option of running hybrid crossfire latter on if you want to invest on a cheap discrete card.
You can overclock both systems latter on. By doing that the Intel system will outperform the AMD one in the processing department, but it will still fall behind in graphics.
Listen to this guy...this has got to be one of the smartest responses I've seen in this thread (and I read the whole thing).

The AMD combo stock clocks, will perform roughly on par with the Intel combo. However the Intel will fall behind in the graphics department (stock clocks of course), and the AMD will fall slightly behind in the processor department. If you ad a new graphics card, the AMD will still pull ahead...and even further thanks to hybrid crossfire.

However if overclocking, AND you add a discrete dedicated graphics card, then the Intel will win. It just depends on what you're doing. If you plan on staying stock clocks, I'd recommend the AMD with 780g chipset. You CANNOT go wrong with that for a media center use. That's what most of the smart people around here will use in their HTPC rigs (media centers).

If you plan on doing heavy CPU tasks, and some light gaming, I'd recommend the Intel combo with a dedicated graphics card.

Its really up to you. Either one will be a good deal faster than your current Pentium 4. And will BOTH be very comparable at stock speeds. It just all matters on what you'll do with it if you overclock, or plan on gaming with it.

You're missing a video card in that build. That particular motherboard has NO onboard video.

Other than that, it looks to be an excellent build . I sure hope you plan on taking that puppy to 3.0GHz and beyond!

EDIT:
And I'm just assuming here, but you must already have a DVD drive of some sort (or CD)? Because that is also missing...if this is an entire build.
