Here are my concerns with the first one- although it is cheaper, the hard drive is only 5400RPMs and it doesnt allow for a different graphics card... The second one allows for a very good graphics card. However, the second one has a smaller hard drive and a slower processor....


Any thoughts??

Thanks :)

2nd ftw

the harddrive is faster, and a better graphics card

the processor is only 200mhz slower.

I'm sure you can overclock it that little bit using a program if the bios is locked.
