I've been given a budget of $2000 for computers and monitors. The machines will be running SW/Cosmos 2008 and have WinXP 64 bit.

It costs $400 more for the FX1700 over the FX570. With the money I would lose out on a better CPU and memory:

Basically the systems would be either of these two:

1) ---Quad Q9450 2.66 Ghz
------6 GB 800Mhz memory
------FX570 video card

- or -

2) ---Quad Q6600 2.40 Ghz
------4 GB 800Mhz memory
------FX1700 video card

I think I'd rather have a faster CPU and and more memory (for cosmos). Do you agree?
