Default Help me choose a new gaming rig! :)

Ok well i want a pc that will run games like WoW, SC2, Diablo3, and maybe some more graphic intensive games at high settings with good fps. I would also like a comp that has more room to upgrade in the future with the least amount of hassle. Maybe a higher end video card or processor later on. These are the options

1. http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...611&CatId=1886

2.iBUYPOWER GAMER EXTREME 955SLCK Desktop PC - Intel Core i5 655K 3.2GHz (Unlocked CPU), 8GB DDR3, 1TB HDD, ATI Radeon HD 5770, DVDRW, 700 Watt PSU, Liquid Cooling, Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit, Green at TigerDirect.com

3.iBUYPOWER Gamer Extreme 970SLC Desktop PC - Intel Core i7 930 2.8GHZ, 6GB DDR3, 1TB HDD, ATI Radeon HD 5770, DVDRW, Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit at TigerDirect.com

Please help me choose and explain why w/e one you recommend is better. Thanks!

you can build a faster one for cheaper...

it really is very simple and straight forward building a computer and you will get the absolute most bang for your buck.

we can help you build a computer that will smash those computer for the same price.

Ok for a 1000$ budget what would you recommend. For the most bang for my buck gaming experience. I also need an operating system included. I do not have one. Preferably windows 7. The only thing I am afraid off is once I have all the parts putting the comp together. Without having too much trouble. Thanks!

Forgot to add that i do not need mouse or keyboard or monitor included in this build. Just the windows 7 os.

Thanks for the reply. If I wanted to switch out for a intel I5 core what do you think? That would require a different motherboard as well?

Yes, you would need to change to a different motherboard, because the i5 (because it's made by Intel instead of AMD) uses a different socket.
