Yeah I agree with rowcon.

Neither of the two graphics cards mentioned are brilliant, if I were you I'd want a GTX970 or similar.

Neither one has a power supply worth a toot. And I agree with the assessment of the graphics cards.

Like the guys said, build your own.

One is an alienware and is therefore immediately relegated due to being a re-badged XPS

and the GPU in the first PC is naff for gaming, the R7 series are more for HTPCs.

I'm sure most of us here learnt how to build a PC by building a PC

But we're just saying the ideal scenario, even if they can't and/or won't build a PC, they know that these two machines aren't perfect for the job!

Agree. You learn by doing.
Since this is suppose to be a gaming rig, a custom PC is by far the best option. Not to mention the pure feel of accomplishment. (for the first built at least)
If it was a low budget home theater or office PC it would be a different story.

I cannot wait for my first build. This forum is the only reason that I know hardware. I hope that the OP can learn in the same way that I did.

I'll pick one for you... neither! Are you kidding? They are pathetic POSes.

Not worth the money they're asking for. Pathetic assortment of parts.

We can make you a list of killer parts for the same amount. Build it yourself or get someone to do so but don't buy any of that crap.
