(It has to do with how the processor executes instructions/commands.) But both are so far advanced nowadays that there isn't a whole lot of real world difference between them. Nothing the average person needs to know, but you can Google the terms if you really wanna get geeky.
Nice setup for a rig, by the way. IMHO, 2 things I would keep an eye on: The PSU has gotten a couple of iffy reviews; I would go with Antec or Enermax if it gets flaky. And the heatsinks provided with AMD processors are crap if you'll be doing a lot of cpu intensive work; you may want to change that out in the future
I think it should be fine. A lot of people are idiots... the first negative review was:
"Pros: It worked-for about two months...
Cons: Came with my case. Started to cause my system to reboot every 5 minuets. Also there is no fan on the bottom to suck heat out of case -gets verry hot and is noisier than hell!
Other Thoughts: Want to screw up a 4000 dollar dream machine! buy this one!"
Obviously this guy is an idiot.
