  1. 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.
  2. why are these your only two options?
  3. Wow Packard Bell is still around? YIKES

    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
