Question Getting Gaming Computer and need help choosing!

So I'm getting a gaming computer pretty soon to replace my laptop and I've found two that are really nice and are the same price. One is from microtel and I know that they have good products and one is from Systemax. I really need some help because their specs are somewhat the same. Microtel Computer® AMTI9025 Gaming Computer with 3.4GHz AMD Phenom II x4 965 Quad-Core processor, 8GB DDR3/1333, 1TB SATAII, 24X DVD-RW, NVIDIA GeForce HD N450 GTS 1GB GDDR5 Video Card, Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium Full Version CD - 6

Systemax:SYX Ascent MPC-30 Multimedia PC - Genuine Windows® 7 Home Premium 64 Bit, Intel® Core™ i7 2600 3.40 GHz, 8GB DDR3, 1TB HDD, Intel HD Graphics 2000, FREE Total War™: Shogun 2 Game download at

Neither one of those is what I would consider a Gaming PC. While they maybe capable of playing some games on low settings, in the future you will only be disappointed.

I suggest building your own PC.
