Default Desktop PC

I am contenplating getting a Desktop PC for my home as well, I have two monitors and not utilising the other, and have some 'spare' cash to waste :P

I was thinking either;
Austin Computers Austin Home Advanced - A3
or
Austin Computers Austin Work Value - A11
or:

http://www.msy.com.au/SYSTEMS/INTELAMD-UpgradeValue.pdf / http://www.msy.com.au/Parts/PARTS.pdf
i7 = $500
8gb = $35
1TB = $20
Win 8 = $100
Samsung/LG Dual Layer DVD ReWriter = $20
PCI-E TP-Link WN881ND = $19
Total Price = $694

Only problem with second option is I believe there isn't a Graphics Card in the deal, so I'd need to buy one. Anyone got any suggestions for me?

I'd mostly be using it for Internet and then eventually looking into PC Gaming again :P

3rd option babes >

i7 = $500
8gb = $35
1TB = $20
Win 8 = $100 ... Go Win 7 if you want to game
Samsung/LG Dual Layer DVD ReWriter = $20
PCI-E TP-Link WN881ND = $19

and you will need a Graphics Card, PSU (branded) and a nice case>
