Default Decent Desktop

Hey guys,

I need a decent gaming desktop that isn't terribly expensive. Preferably, I would be able to play most games on high/medium. Does anyone have any suggestions?

How would these two choices run things:

Desktop 1:

2.5Ghz Intel Core i5
4GB (two 2GB) memory
500GB hard drive
ATI Radeon HD 6750M with 512MB

Desktop 2:

Intel Pentium B940 Processor (2.00)Ghz OR Intel Core i3-2310M Proc. (2.10)Ghz
NVIDIA GeForce GT540M (1GB) Dedicated GPU
500GB Hard Drive
4GB (4GBx1) DDR3-SDRAM-1333

Thank you!

Definitely the i5 over the Pentium Dual-Core.

Likewise, the i5 based system will give you more in the long run.
