hi ,
i want to buy a computer with a monitor.
my budget is 399 pounds
want do you think is the best spec for this price.
also i have found two systems below.

INTEL Core2Duo E4600 / SAMSUNG 4GB DDR800

MAXTOR 500GB SATA2 / SONY 20XDVD+/-RW

NVIDIA GeForce 7050TC 512MB

MICROSOFT XP Home Or Vista Home

TFT 22' Widescreen TFT 5MS 1680*1050

or

# AMD Phenom X4 9150e Quad Core Processor

# Genuine Windows Vista (R) Home Premium

# 2GB Memory

# 320GB Hard Drive

# Dual-layer DVD ReWriter

i was wondering which was better or if you could find a better deal for the price.
is the AMD Phenom X4 9150e better then the core 2 duo e4600

My money, the top one, more memory, bigger HDD = better value, no point in comparing processors you probably won't notice the diference anyway...

the AMD will run cooler and is more conducive to high end gaming...
