    Both are really good, but I suggest the first one. I dunno, I just like Intel stuff.

    Well, Wilson.... I'll be frank (not really "Frank" - mind you) as some people know me enough (Friends, people here and clients) that I do not BS about quality or performance.

    My little upgrade cost me about $400 (Actually $200 after I sold an older PC) and it'll be about the same or faster than what you bought.

    1 - The 7600GS is fine for 2004 or older games, otherwise its a crappy card for gaming for the money. The 7600GT cost about $20 more and is about twice as fast. Looking at Newegg - they just made a price-reduced version ($120 after rebate) : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16814125025
    (Mind is the older & somewhat bigger version)

    2 - What is the 700watt PSU for? With that CPU & GPU combo, a 350watt PSU would do the job. You need 700watts if you're popping in x2 8800GTX and 4 hard drives.

    3 - RAID-0, while offering a bit more performance, isn't worth the danger in my book. If ever an error develops on the system - bye bye all your data. RAID-1 actually means something... RAID 5 is for the big-boys.

    A self built system with an OC'd C2D 6300 and 7900gs would be hundreds less and would run circles around your new system.

    Here's a VGA chart: (7600gs vs 7900GT selected)

    Your new system should play Doom3 fine at 1024x768 and other such games. But games like Oblivion or Crysis or UT2007.... nope.

    i think the PS comes with the tower. the pc im getting is a fx530mx. the higher end pc with this case does come with dual cards. plus i can upgrade to dual cards in the future, if i want.
    this is a pic of the case im getting.
