The 1st one would be better because it has a dual core processor and has 2 6600gts which would play games very well, although it only has 512mb of memory.

But the 2nd one would still be very good too. It depends on if you want to spend the extra money on the first one or not.

The 2nd one is fine for you. No need for the dual core.

I would choose the second one go with dual core its the future your comp will last more in terms of technology and u can multitask witha dual core like be runing a whole lot of progras and be playing and you wont have any sort of lag just one thing upgrade the gam to 512X2 and how much does the 2 GT's add to the price?

How much do those 2 systems cost?

And how much are you willing to spend.
