Intel. Get the E6600 if you can afford it.

I can not :sad:. That is why i am decideing between these two computers.

2GB is good. Specify the fastest memory you can afford.

For an equivalent performance to that core 2 duo, I think you should be looking at an Athlon X2 4600+ system.

Id maybe go for the intel setup, you can always upgrade to a better cpu as the prices drop.

@RiKToR: That is true. But, amd could put out a new cpu at reasonable price...

The Intel. RAM is easy to add & not too expensive. If you start with 1GB, add a single 1GB stick, not 2*512. Although you won't have dual-channel, it will be much better when you get round to adding 1GB.
If going the AMD, the 4200 X2 is the best value I think.
