Exclamation Buying new GAMING PC Id like advice please

Hi to all, I'm new to these forums as you've noticed it's my first post!
Anyways I've come here to ask a question which of these computer is the strongest machine? As in being able to handle graphics, graphics processing and processing everything in general smooth.


1st

• AMD Phenom™II X4 955 CPU
• MSI 770-G45 AM3 770 MB
• 4GB DDR3/1600MHz RAM
• 500GB SATA-II 7200RPM HDD
• NVIDIA GTS 250 1GB Video
• LG 22X DVD/RW Drive
• High Definition 7.1 Sound
• Apex Vortex 3620 Gaming Case
----

2nd

• Intel Core i5-660 CPU
• EVGA P55 TR Intel P55V MB
• 4GB DDR3/1600MHz RAM
• 500GB SATA-II 7200RPM HDD
• NVIDIA GTS 250 1GB Video
• LG 22X DVD/RW Drive
• High Definition 7.1 Sound
• Thermaltake V3 Black Case
----
3rd
• AMD Phenom™II X4 925 CPU
• MSI 770-G45 AM3 770 MB
• 4GB DDR3/1600MHz RAM
• 1TB SATA-II 7200RPM HDD
• ATI HD 5750 1GB Video
• LG 22X DVD/RW Drive
• High Definition 7.1 Sound
• Windows 7 Home Premium
• Thermaltake Element-T Case

These computers will include WINDOWS 7 and also all come with LIQUID COOLING.

Another question I'd like to ask if these computers would be able to process games smoothly such as. Battle Field: Bad Company 2 for PC.

Also a Graphics Card question, which card is better NVIDIA or ATI, What's with the new (HD) ATI Card's are they currently the best for smoothness? Or NVIDIA.

***EDIT*** (These Comps also have 600W Power, That's fine right)
Thank you,
-Leo

ATI Radeon 5870 rocks. the deal with Nvidia is that you pay more for them. ATI can provide better cards for cheaper. I have the beta of BFBC2 and i can run it nicely with the ATI radeon 5870. By the way that card can very safely over-clock to 890MHz core clock and 1205 MHz memory clock. hope this helped
