If it is an LCD you should always try to play at the maximum resolution, otherwise there is a huge drop in quality. And I suspect an Intel rig in this price range will be slower than either of those two AMD rigs. You could also get a Seagate drive500GB 7200.12 drive for around $20 cheaper than that WD Black drive. The Seagate is similar speed but much quieter and uses less power. You could pricematch it to Newegg: - Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 ST3500418AS 500GB 7200 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive - Internal Hard Drives
