So, I posted a few days ago in one of the more-general forums regarding my processor selection. I've narrowed it down considerably since then to one (to HP/Compaq), since, with the 6% education discount, and a hoard of rebates, I can get one fairly cheap.

For an internet-addled, sometime gamer (Morrowind/hopefully Oblivion/NWN) with seemingly-unlimited AC power who's returning to school and who hates waiting for Windows to start up, which do you ye old masters consider most favorable?

Compaq M2000Z
* Turion MT34 1.8Ghz 1MB L2/15" XGA/Radeon 200M 128
* $701.62

Compaq V2000Z
* Turion ML37 2.0Ghz 1MB L2/14" WXGA wide/Radeon 200M 128 w/hypermem
* $818.56

Compaq R4000
* Athlon 3800+ 2.4GHZ 512KB L2 w/the much-debated dual channel mem. issue
* 15.4" WXGA wide/Radeon 200M 128 w/hypermem
* $830.42 (Alternatively, I can make this a 4000+ 1MB L2 for another $94)

I'm WAY past my prime in terms of knowledge of hardware, and could use a bit of help. Thanks /blush.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='blush.gif' />
