It doesn't really matter because you will be gfx bottlenecked in gaming with either system. Hence, get whichever is cheaper.

I would wait until next year when there will be 32nm CPU released.

we have been bought the compaq for xmas, but i have seen the packard bell one in pc world for £50 more, including a higher spec monitor.(the compaq also comes with monitor)

Also, i have heard that 2gb isn't enough for windows 7 64 bit, and the processor with ddr 3 is suspect?

If i get a graphics card, will i be able to play the more recent games
