I'm in a bit of a pickle here, IF I sell my mobo/cpu/ram for $300, I could get:

AMD 4400+
DFI SLI-DR Expert
2GB (2x1GB) G.SKILL DDR500
For about $850-300=$550

OR

I could sell just my cpu/ram for $150 and get:

Pentium D 930 Presler
2GB (2x1GB) Crucial Ballistix DDR2 667
For about $700-150=$550

So which should I do, considering the cost to me (my dad) will be the same $550 bucks, should I get a 4400+ and OC it to about 2.6 which is what most people get to or should I get the Presler which should hit over 4.2GHz......

I'm not saying this just because I'm a fan of AMD, I'm saying this because you will get an overall better CPU if you go with the AMD. It might not be as fast, but I imagine it will be more overclockable and you will be able to squeeze more power out of it. Also, the DFI boards have been shown time and time again to be some of the best OCers on the market.
