The 2107. The 550ti is the best GPU shown here which will grant the best performance in these games.

Thanks for the feedback, anyone else? and is the second one listed significantly better then the first? also the first one got much better reviews on the website because some where complaining about the the 2107 not even starting up once they got it, does this happen sometimes? ( I have never bought a gaming computer before).

All depends on shipping and luck of the draw. Some people are just plain stupid too.

Those people telling you they can't play games are just the type of people who think they need dual 690s and a 3960x to play console ports.

The machine with the 550ti will do exactly what you want it to do.
