Default Which PC would you recommend?

Well i have finally gathered up some money to get a a PC that can handle somewhat modern games and im willing to drop about 750$ to 800$ on it. So far i have come across two but i would like to know which one would work better for gaming purposes.

Newegg.com - lenovo K430 (31091NU) Desktop PC Intel Core i7 3770(3.40GHz) 8GB DDR3 2TB HDD Capacity NVIDIA GeForce GT 620 1GB Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit


CyberPowerPC Gamer Xtreme Desktop 8GB Memory 1TB Hard Drive GXI270 - Best Buy


Also if you know of any other Pc's that do not go over 800$ and surpass both of the two choices please put a link to it .... thankyou!

i would say neither. you should really build your own. if you can play with legos, you can build your own. save some money, and learn much more about your rig. my build for you:

Newegg.com - Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64-bit - Operating Systems

Newegg.com - Intel Core i3-3225 Ivy Bridge 3.3GHz LGA 1155 55W Dual-Core Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 4000 BX80637I33225

Newegg.com - ASRock Z77 Extreme4 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Newegg.com - G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBRL

Newegg.com - Antec NEO ECO 620C 620W Continuous Power ATX12V v2.3 / EPS12V 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Power Supply

Newegg.com - EVGA 02G-P4-3651-KR GeForce GTX 650 Ti 2GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card

Newegg.com - Western Digital WD Black WD5003AZEX 500GB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive

Newegg.com - Antec Three Hundred Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Newegg.com - ASUS 24X DVD Burner - Bulk 24X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 12X DVD+R DL 24X DVD-R 6X DVD-RW 16X DVD-ROM 48X CD-R 32X CD-RW 48X CD-ROM Black SATA Model DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS - CD / DVD Burners

$802 and you get assassins creed 3

when you get money for an upgrade, you can get a better cpu and gpu. what you have there now is more than enough for any game out there now, and the gpu is 10x better than either of what the prebuilts you linked to are.

I would change the motherboard but do what he says. Those 2 PCs linked suck.

An H77 board. Same features, less price. The likelyhood of half the people wanting to overclock is slim to none.

Default Re: Which PC would you recommend?

fair enough.

perhaps:
Newegg.com - ASRock H77 Pro4/MVP LGA 1155 Intel H77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

and either save the difference in money or upgrade gpu:
Newegg.com - SAPPHIRERadeon HD 7850 OC 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card ( 11200-01-20G )

or cpu:
Newegg.com - Intel Core i5-3350P Ivy Bridge 3.1GHz (3.3GHz Turbo) LGA 1155 Quad-Core Desktop Processor BX80637i53350P

Build your own computer. That's the best possible deal. I'm not going to post links to parts that people will disagree with. I'm just telling you that it's better to build your own and to listen to PP Mguire.
