With the $20 comes better reliability, a 5 year warranty, and better performance so I think it's worth it.

any comments on gpu for either build? i think the msi 144.99 price tag is super appealing. the first rig is for a gamer-- second rig is for a non-gamer but i still think haven't a nice gpu will be beneficial in long run. i was looking at maybe saving some money for say a 5770 but its like 10 bucks cheaper, so why not?
