Acer AX1420G-U5832 Desktop PC:
AMD Athlon II X4 Quad-Core 645 processor
3.1GHz, 2MB Cache
4GB of DDR3 SDRAM system memory (expandable to 8GB)
1TB SATA hard drive
Integrated NVIDIA GeForce 6150SE Graphics
I'm lacking the skill/hardware/funds to build my own computer, so I'd like to buy one of these for gaming, but I'm not sure which is better, so please help me out and clarify which I should get and why it's better than the other.
I would have you get this, Intel media accelerator isnt worth nothing for games, but basic home and office tasks and other stuff.
The amd one with the geforce isn't that hot either, but you can put in a better graphics card and adjust it to your liking.
That quadcore should do you fine, not unless a games requirement is over that of a athlon ii quadcore which isnt noticed very much.
Whats the price difference between the 2, simliar hardware but different speeds and feel for the chipsets are what really count.
If your going to be highly productive on a computer and do some light gaming, I would look into a new core i3 or core i5 build for your needs.
If you cannot build it yourself, have a friend you can trust personally to assemble it with you helping out.
Good luck on it.
