I think I'm going to go with the second one. I can get it for $707 bucks free shipping. Is that a good price?

i like the first 1 best, only thing i would change about it is to get 1 gig of ram instead of 512, and people are saying get a better video card so maybe upgrade that a bit, besides that factor i like setup 1 alot better
