I realize there is a difference between the storage capacity is 1 main factor, but trying to determine the differences between the graphic ard and processor.  Which is better ?

1GB Nvidia GeForce GT 120 graphics card - LX6810-01
ATI Radeon HD 5570 Graphics with 1024MB of dedicated DDR3 VRAM - DX4320-17
Intel Core 2 Quad Q8200- LX6810-01
AMD Phenom II X4 Quad-Core Processor 945-DX4320-17

Well, let me provide some benchmarks that I found:\

http://www.videocardbenchmark.net/gpu_list.php

Processors (higher number is better):
AMD Phenom II X5 945 = 3600
Intel Core 2 Quad Q8200 = 3260

Note: Intel Q8000 series does NOT support Virtualization Technology (for hardware-assisted virtualization - used for Windows 7 XP Mode and other virtualization software), where the AMD does.

Video Cards (First - higher is better, Second - lower is better):
Nvidia GeForce GT 120 = 389/206
ATI Radeon HD 5570 = 743/91

Given this information, if all else was the same, including price, I think the AMD system is a no brainer.  There a a few other reasons you might need an Intel over an AMD, but not for 99% of users.
