    DEPENDS, what do you want to do with it, for gaming get the Vid card, for working, get the processor.
    Personnaly i would take the 9700, i dont do compression/decompression and encoding, 1800+ is enuph for me!
    SYX -=AMD Powered=-
    AMD 1800+ @ 1880Mhz on A7S333 , 250 Meg DDR 333 Platinum @2-2-2-6
    Asus TNT 2 32 meg (128) , 250W ATX, 200W AT (same case)
    Steel automotive intake fan (see avatar) , 3X40mm exaust fans in the back

    like syx said, it really depends on what you want to do with it. the new cpu will improve overall performance (assuming your DDR ram is at least PC2700), but the video card will drastically improve gaming performance.
    I've gone too far and need to move on!
