Well if you got the money get the first one, if you don't get the second one. The first one is alot better then the second one although they are both great computers. They aren't dell, right? Don't buy it if its a dell

although i do agree that he should get a better vid card, i gotta say that the 7600GS will play everything out right now basically.... not at the best settings, but it will play everything. my 7600GT (GS is a bit lower) even plays crysis (beta)

Why would you say don't buy Dell?

Thats the most obserd thing I have ever heard.

Granted, they aren't good for some people, they can be perfect for others. They do make quality computers that last. I still have a P2 from them.


Anyhow, the first one is a pretty good computer. However, it depends on how it will be used. Odds are good, the computer will work great for you.

Yeah, Dell computers aren't as bad as some people think they are.
