Default Quick PC advice

Hi there,

Got 2 offers for systems - just need to know which one you would go for. Now I'm still awaiting emails for further info about some parts but here is the jist of it.

Setup 1

AMD 9950 black edition quad core
ASUS Xonar D2X pro 7.1 sound card
4GB Kingston 1066MHz low lat - high performance ram
500GB Sata
1000W PSU
Antec fusion case
TV Card
DVD Burner
windows 7

Setup 2

Dell Inspiron (upgraded)
i7 Cpu (not sure which one.. prob the lowest end/2nd lowest,, awaiting reply)
GT 240
no idea what PSU but as I said it's an upgraded Dell in one of the Inspiron cases therefore prob 300/350W?
windows 7

I'll be using the pc for mainly Flight sim X and uni work - so video/3D modelling work. Both are extremely cheap setups. The first 250 and the second 350. The graphics card alone in the 1st makes up most of the price and the CPU in the second right? I'm getting good deals from friend/friend of friend.

Any help much appreciated

First option seems better to me from specs given. Should be sufficient for your work.
Need to update my siggy!
