Which of the following (2) computers give the best bang for my buck. I don't play any first-person shooter games or anything. I would say the most intensive/demanding thing we do is Starcraft 2.
We are trying to work within an $800 budget and we need a new monitor and Windows 7. Here are the (2) options I am considering. I'm open to suggestions, but these seem to be the best deals I could find.
OPTION #1 from Costco
AMD Phenom II x6 1035t
6GB DDR3 1333 RAM
24" monitor (5ms refresh)
OPTION #2 from Office Depot
AMD Athlon II 630
4GB DDR3 PC-10600 RAM
integrated Radeon 4200
***this leaves me $350 for video card upgrade and monitor***
i recommend option 1 if your sorta lazy and don't want to buy a new graphics card and such but option 2 would proably be better since you would have 350 for a graphics card and a moniter but its up to you (option 1 has better CPU)
