    The AMD system is faster for mono-tasking and the Intel system is faster for multi-tasking.
    What are you going to use the machine for?

    By the look of the low end graphics card I doubt you're into 3D gaming?

    The Intel one should be slightly better in long term.

    all depends what your doing, for general workstation PC the intel for sure, but for gaming i'd say the amd, i have had one of those gfx cards aswell and they do not perform well at all, even in counter-strike 1.6 you wont gte 100fps with smoke on the screen. and its a 7 year old game.

    the amd one is good but wtf is with the graphics

    they pick a board with onboard graphics, no good for new games but fair enough it will do

    then they add an x300SE which is just about the worst current graphics card around

    all that will do is take up power and produce heat

    i guess it has a DVI output on it which might be useful but its still pretty stupid, why not use a cheaper asus board without onboard graphics?
