Default Looking for a budget computer

I was looking at the Gateway computers and don't know which is better: Gateway SX2840-01 or Gateway SX2800-01? Want to do some gaming, nothing hardcore, music, converting movies, something for media purposes. Which processor is better? Which has better integrated graphics? Please let me know. Thanks

Those both have the same integrated graphics, both are not very good.

This is a great machine that can do all that and more, because of the new Nvidia ION chip that can handle those types of things.

This is also another choice, it has a much better graphics chip than the intergrated Intel chip.

Then again it's your choice, just a quick recommendation.

The SX2840-01 is the better computer.
