i guess im looking for the most future proof outta the two. with the 1705 it looks like ill still need to spend 150 to upgrade the ram and another 80 or so for a dvd burner and then id need a bigger hd but i like the core duo, 7800 and trulife. would these be worth the extra ~300 id need to spend?
like people have said, the e1705 will multi task better, the 2ghz pm will keep up with your games, the xps base has a 2.0ghz in it. The 6800 can be overcolocked to get about 4000 3dmark05 i think the 7800 overclocked can get around 5500
