Default Need advice on buying a pc

Hi, I'm new here but I'd really appreciate any help you can give me about buying a tower. I'm looking at two. I like to download movies, shows and play mmo's. I don't think I need a super computer to run things like that, but would like to get a good mid-range type gaming pc. Something that will run Conan online and some games.

Here are the two I've been looking at.

Gamer special A

-SandyBridge Core i5-2500K
-Liquid CPU Cooling
-NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 Ti 1GB
-1TB 7200RPM SATA-III HDD
-8GB DDR3 1600 Memory

Or the Gamer Special B

-AMD FX-4100 CPU
-Liquid CPU Cooling
-4GB DDR3 1600 Memory
-NVIDIA GeForce GT 520 1GB
-1TB 7200RPM SATA-III HDD

The 3rd one from that site is the Gamermage D415.

Here's the link to the site: ibuypower

The different comps are on the front page. I'd also like to be able to upgrade it as time goes by. Hope I've provided enough info. Also, please pretend I know next to nothing. You wouldn't be far off at all.

Thanks!

The computer you need depends upon the tasks you expect to use it for. This in turn will affect the price you would expect to pay for it. A good way to begin is to list the essential tasks you will want to do on your computer. Is playing the latest 3D action games a priority, or do you only want to type letters and keep your accounts? Your priorities could make a big difference to the type of computer and extra peripherals (printer, scanner, speakers, etc) that you need to buy. As well as your "essential" list, it is also a good idea to make a secondary "possible" list of non-essential - but desirable - computer activities.

Thanks kathiny. I did list what I wanted. Downloading music, movies, pictures, shows as well as playing MMO's mostly. I might play some RPG games on the computer, but shooters and things I'd probably play on the PS3.
