that's a good gaming rig, but if your not on a tight budget you could get a X3 or X4 AMD CPU

That's a nice rig. It has a good processor, plenty of memory and a fast video card. It should be able to handle most anything you throw at it.

Thanks for this input guys.

Also there is this computer, which is more expensive. Is this better?

Stick with the first one. The Phenom II X3 720 is a nice CPU, but you will be giving up a bit of performance with the GTS 250 video card. If it's much more expensive, it's not worth the extra cost.
