And please post anything else i need to know.
If money isn't an issue, I'd definitely get the 7800. It performs better and also runs cooler. As for the 3.4 vs 3.6, I'd personally go with the 3.4 because the difference is barely noticeable, the 3.4 is more cost friendly, and it also has a lower power consumption. However, as someone already mentioned, why go with the Intel? It's outdated now that the Aurora is out. For desktop processors in a mobile unit, AMD beats Intel hands down right now.
