what vid card does the second pc have?
I'd say that the cpu in the 1st pc is better, but they are pretty close.

Something tells me your buying a pre-built system... the CPU in the first computer is MUCH better... but the video card in the 2nd is a lot better than the first one... personally, i'd just go get custom built, that way you get the best of both worlds.

if u can get it for both then go with the amd system. If not then definitely the intel one, since the vid card is so important in gaming.
