depends on how you'll be using the pc

from a gaming standpoint, the 3ghz e8400 is faster. if you'll be using adobe creative suite or video editting software, then the quad core q6600 is the better choice. i'd skip the e8300 since it's only $50 less.

64 bit

In reply to: Help with Computer Specs

64 bit + 4 gigabyte or more RAM = trouble
My friend had a system that had 4 gigabytes of RAM with a 32 bit OS and the OS only recognized 3.5 Gigabytes. I don't think XPS 630 has 64bit OS option
