id get a mediocre gaming pc + laptop with that money

the pc in my signature seriously only costed me 575$ tax and shipping included

. and with the extra 325$, id get an eee pc or an acer 8.9'' laptop. or an itouch. lol
i think if your goning to be a gamer set you budget as high as you can. as technology advances you don't want o keep buying new parts unless you HAVE to, so buy nealy the top of the line stuff, or so thats what i did. the budget i stuck with for my gaming rig was $1900 but thats to build fromt the ground up.

but no offence to you

I would go with one of the two quoted systems however you will need to cut back somewhere to fit the OS of your choice.

I agree, my cutback would be on the Quad. If I go with a C2D, then I can save about $60.

I dont. My build is still better using better parts. Like the RAM thats suggested is DDR2 800 where the ones I suggested are 1066, The HDD are 8mb cache I suggested one w/ a 16mb cache, the PSU I suggested is also way better and will wind up being cheaper than both of those after MIR. Not to mention it will have a 4870. And the mobo I suggested holds the OC record (E8400, FSB675MHz, CPU to 6.0GHz.) While you might not get the fancyest case with my build, the CM Centurion is hardly a piece of junk.
