    Ok guys, I was considering this build for a budget Water Cooled System, but didnt know if I should go with Intel or AMD for the Processor. Take a look at this build for me and let me know which config, in your opinion, whould you go with.

    I used Newegg.com for this build, becuase I know they are great with quality and speed. Keep in mind that I know there are many better components out there, but I'm trying to keep it around $1,000. Thanks

    ~~~Intel Build~~~

    Titan Water case TWC-A88 Silver Aluminum ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Retail $219.49

    Rosewill RD450-2-DB ATX V2.2 450W Power Supply 115/230 V UL, CSA, TUV, FCC - Retail $36.99

    ASUS P5NSLI LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 570 SLI Intel Edition ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail $98.99

    Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 Conroe 2.4GHz 4M shared L2 Cache LGA 775 Processor - Retail $313.00

    EVGA 512-P2-N635-AR Geforce 7950GT KO 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 Video Card - Retail $249.99 ($234.99 after $15.00 Mail-In Rebate)

    Seagate Barracuda 7200.9 ST3120811AS 120GB 7200 RPM 8MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive $53.99

    (I know the Power Supply is kinda cheesey, but keep in mind that for this case an ATX v2.2 PS is required, and a name-brand ATX v2.2 Power Supply can get pricey)

    Grand Total After Mail-in-rebate : $1,041.44

    ~~~~ AMD BUILD ~~~~

    I swapped out the MotherBoard and Processor, and Memory with these..

    ASUS M2N-E SLI Socket AM2 NVIDIA nForce 500 SLI MCP ATX AMD Motherboard - Retail $98.99
