Hi, I have looked at the two CyberPowers you linked to, and they both seem to be pretty solid builds. That having been said, I ahve found somthing else for you to ponder: http://www.amazon.co...&qid=1277393529
If you build it yourself, you will save a bit of money, even with the High priced processor ( The 960 is a bit cheaper than the 975, and Amazon does have it as well as the 965). The Rampage II Motherboard is mATX and the other listed is a Full ATX. It is your decision to make in which direction you want to go. You have allowed yourself a very good budget with which to work, but even with the high priced Processors, by building it yourself, you can save some money. Again, it is ultimately your choice.
