Smile PC Recommendations Needed

I found 2 PCs that interested me a lot. Both are cheap prices, but which one is better? This one: http://www.circuitcity.com/ssm/Compa...oductDetail.do (with a extra 1 GB RAM) Or this one: http://shop3.frys.com/product/572954...H:MAIN_RSLT_PG (go here to know more about the PC: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16883107718) Sure the HP looks better, but what problems will happen since it is recertified/refurbished? I'm not sure what to do.

As for playing games and such, I would upgrade it with a 9600 GSO (http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...053&CatId=1558) and a PSU. Which PSU should I choose? I'm looking around no more than a $40 PSU and it HAS to be 450 watts or higher to support the graphics card. From Tigerdirect.com or Newegg.com preferably.

Well, that's all!

Later...

The Circuit City link (first) is dead on my end. I like the HP, and that's worth considering.

first link is broken



i would get the hp, i have had a gateway that has been recertified. it has been about 1 year now aand all i needed to do was upgrade little by little.


here is a good psu http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16817371019 it may look a little.... plain ..... but antec is known for making quality PSUs. Since it is also 500 watts you can upgrade a little, but you may have to check that it could handle it.
