Default Choosing my first digicam

Hi, I'm new around here, how are you guys?

I need help choosing my first digital camera, I'm from Argentina, so here we don't have a lot of models like in US (and they are more expensive here). I don't need a high end camera, I just want an affordable cam with an aceptable quality.

I'm thinking on a Fuji A205 or a Olympus D-390, both cams cost around U$S 200-220 here. Which one do you think is a better camera? (a good thing about the Fuji is the optical 3x zoom, but tell me what you think)

Thanks in advance!!!

Ohh, another quick question, I've read in the Steve's review that the Fuji can be used as a PC Cam, is that right? Can I use it as a webcam in MSN Messenger and all that stuff?

Bye!! And sorry if my english is not perfect

I would go with the Fuji, because as u mentioned it has optical zoom, wich is very useful, other than that I always prefer Olympus, so if both had optical zoom would choose Oly

See ya
