Here are my concerns with the first one- although it is cheaper, the hard drive is only 5400RPMs and it doesnt allow for a different graphics card... The second one allows for a very good graphics card. However, the second one has a smaller hard drive and a slower processor....


Any thoughts??

Thanks

If you're going to be gaming, get the second one for the graphics. If not, I'd get the first one.

2nd ftw

the harddrive is faster, and a better graphics card

the processor is only 200mhz slower.

I'm sure you can overclock it that little bit using a program if the bios is locked.
