why are these your only two options?
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
