  1. Option 2

  2. For the games you suggested yes either will do you.

    When you try UT3, Crysis etc you'll be in for a massive shock because the graphics cards inside these lick balls big time.

    I would highly recommend you build your own system, its a simple case of googling it and educating yourself. Its an absolute doddle.

    Whichever brand / prebuilt computer you buy, you'll find its an overpriced pile of junk.

    If you must buy one make sure it has a free pci express 16x slot so you can fit your own in future. 8800gt's are a steal for the price at the moment.


  3. Those are both decent PC's, except for the Video Cards. The Nvidia 7100 I believe is onboard, and the 8400GS is very low end.

    If you want to play games I suggest either building your own, or buying one of these and planning on upgrading the Video card when you get it.

    Good luck


  4. let me give u my own suggestion

    motherboard giga good one like ep45 ds4p

    CPU core 2 duo E8600 for Gaming core 2 quad for good performance in everything

    RAM more better 2GB is good 4GB is perfect

    graphic card is so much important listen first of all i have to tell u that

    GTX is better than GT so forget GT

    GX2 is better than GTX but so much expensive

    so i suggest you this on xfx geforce 9800 gtx (black edition)

    that's fu... perfect i have.it its unbelievable

    hard drive is not that much important choose what ever u like but it should be SATA

    important tip u should buy a perfect supply power DO NOT forget that

    at least 780watts if u wanna have good performance


  5. i would go with the first option, better graphics card, and the 7 series of cards cant play any good games
