Finally... I've collected some money on a new computer! And I have a two options of configurations to choose from, that I need an advice on.

First...

CPU: Athlon 2 X2 250 (3.0 GHz; 2 MB)
Motherboard: from Gigabyte, on AMD's 780G chipset (int. ATI Radeon HD 3200; sound; GbE)
RAM: 2 GB from Kingston, DDR2-800
HDD: 320/500 GB from Western Digital (Caviar Blue)
ODD: DVD+/-RW DL w/ LightScribe from LG or NEC
Chassis: 400 W PSU; Mid.-Tower ATX (w/ blue LED display, that displays temp. inside, fans speed... etc.)

= $368

THAT CONFIG. IS FOR FUTURE UPGRADING TO ATI RADEON HD 4850 512 MB AND MAYBE 2 MORE GB OF RAM.

Second...

CPU: Intel Pentium Dual-Core E5200 (2.5 GHz; 2 MB)
Motherboard: from Gigabyte, on Intel's P43 chipset (sound; GbE)
RAM: 2 GB from Kingston, DDR2-800
VGA: ATI Radeon HD 4670 512 MB from Sapphire (128-bit; small form-factor (little monster))
HDD: 320/500 GB from Western Digital (Caviar Blue)
ODD: DVD+/-RW DL w/ LightScribe from LG or NEC
Chassis: 400 W PSU; Mid.-Tower ATX (w/ blue LED display, that displays temp. inside, fans speed... etc.)

= $430

So which config. do you like better / would better recommend for me? Problem in 1-st - is that I should send the PC after using it some time for an upgrade for several days again.

I HAVE A SUM OF $400-$475 TO ORDER.

* - with 1-st config. - I have a chance to buy a display and play right-away.
** - with 2-nd config. - I have a ready system block, that I shouldn't send for future upgrading (no problems).

1-st - ~2000 in 3DMark06 (after upgrading - ~15000).
2-nd - ~7500 in 3DMark06.

At 1 of Semptember Mound&Blade: The Warband (Expansion) is going to be released... so, I want to play it there with no lag.

Thanks for any thoughts and/or advices guys!

P.S. So... what we have here - 1-st.: with display and playing right away (but not sure, if strong enough for M&B2); 2-nd.: without display, but no sending for upgrading (should wait for display; not so puwerful, that if 1-st. after upgrading; no M&B/M&B2 at all at this month... :/).
P.P.S. THIS CASE IS URGENT.
