So I don't know much about Computer systems and am looking into buying a decent gaming computer. I want to be able to play Diablo 3 when it comes out and I want to also play Gears OW and Gears OW2. most of the time I will be running programs from the Adobe CS5 masters collection for work purposes as well as 3D rendering and creation programs, and visual effect programs. Just want to know if I am looking at decent computer systems. I don't want Hardware recommendations cause quite frankly I don't know anything about most computer components.

I do not know the manes of the computer or the brands all I know is that they are costume built.

Where are you buying from? The first one has a rather weak video card, the second is better but still too much of a CPU and not a very great video card. You need to find a site where they let you configure your PC (choose your parts) or buy the parts and put it together yourself, it's easy.

Like I said before "I don't know anything about most computer components." So how am i able to know what video card is good or crappy. Do people not read what others say? If i knew the difference between a good video card and a bad one then I guess there would be a better one. If you absolutely have to make a suggestion then give examples of why they are good. I am not looking for the best Video card in the world or the best components in the world cause quite frankly I am not rich. I was asking and I can't believe I have to repeat my self. "Just want to know if I am looking at decent computer systems". If I can run Adobe CS5 and a few new games by turning down the graphics and rendering then that is OK. I Have plenty of time to save more money for a good Video card before Diablo 3 and my visual effects class start up. It is when I buy a decent computer I will ask for advice on components. I can't afford to buy it all at once when my other desk top is sitting on the floor with a fried North Bridge but I am not here to talk about my other computer.
