I have been trying to decide which computer I should get.

1. HP Pavilion Elite HPE-235f BK450AA Desktop PC - AMD Phenom II 1035T Hexa Core 2.60GHz, 8GB DDR3, 1TB HDD, Blu-ray Player/DVDRW, ATI Radeon HD 5570, Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit

2. CyberpowerPC Gamer Xtreme 1030 Intel Core i5 750(2.66GHz) 4GB DDR3 500GB NVIDIA GeForce 9500 GT Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
GIGABYTE GV-R577SO-1GD Radeon HD 5770 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

They both end up to be the same price but I can't decide which one to choose. Core i5 or Phenom II x6? The good thing about Tigerdirect is that there is a store near me so shipping doesn't matter. Please list out the pros and cons for each computer and post your opinion.
BTW I live in Canada. Markham, Ontario to be exact.

Thank you!

The Cyberpower has a 5770 graphics card and the HP has a 5570.
If you buy it at Tiger you'll pay sales tax near 10% if you live in Illinois.
