I am either going to buy one of these 2 pcs, but i don't know which one would be better.. http://www.bestbuy.com/site/ibuypower-desktop-amd-fx-se...$abcat0501000&cp=1&lp=12 or http://www.bestbuy.com/site/ibuypower-desktop-intel-cor....

Basically it's between getting a i5 4440 with a gtx 750, or a AMD FX 6300 with a gtx 750 ti.. whats better?

I could also spend about 1200$ on building a computer... but i don't know how to build them, could anyone leave any part setups that i could buy?

Any feedback would be amazing and much appreciated.

Thanks a lot for the responses. If i am going to build a computer i'd want Intel over AMD as well as Windows 8 over Windows 7, also i think i'd want GTX graphcs cards over radeon.. unless radeon is really that much better.. idk

Does the i5 4690k 3.5ghz perform better than a i7 4770k in mmorpgs like runescape 3, guild wars 2, wow?

What would a build for 1200$ look like including a cool master haf x or Phantom - NZXT case?
For these listed items do you just do to pcpartpicker and order them all there?
Sorry if this seems "dumbed" but i don't know much about computers but i want a nice computer without lag.

The i5 might be 1 or 2 fps slower than the i7 but is $100 cheaper.

The build with a different case would look about the same.

^^^ So get all this and i am solid for playing mmorpgs with high fps? :D 

What is the Gigabyte Radeon R9 290 4GB WINDFORCE Video Card equal to in a GTX series

would gtx 770 2gb be better

Will all these components fit inside the cool master haf x or phantom nzxt?

thanks so much again for all feedback (:

You haven't posted your build. Add your case to your build and PartPicker should checks everything fits.

A R9 290 is about the same as a GTX780
