For CAD and Gaming: zd8000 or n6010?

I'm going to be starting college in September, Manufacturing Engineering, and I'll be doing lots of CAD-related stuff on my PC. I'm also a gamer, so I'll be doing some of that in my free time. I need a desktop replacement, it's going to be on a desk, not my lap most of the time, so heat and weight aren't issues for me. Also, I don't need a big hard drive, I've got a 40gig on my desktop and don't use half of it. I'm settled on a 17 in. screen, and the best two I've found so far are the Fujitsu N6010 and the HP zd8000. The HP seems to be a little more bang for the buck, with slightly higher options for about the same price, but I've read that the Fujitsu display is just about the best in the business, and that the overall build quality is better. Which one would you guys suggest, or are there other models I should look into? Any help would be greatly appreciated

I hate searching for these things... the HP is better as it has the new 6xx Pentium 4s. Has DDR2 and has pci-express gfx.
