Both are low-end gaming machines, you may not be able to use the highest settings for your games, and you may have lag - usually caused by a slow monitor (less than 5ms gray-to-gray) or a slow internet connection. The cyber-power has a discrete graphics card, which is usually better than an integrated graphics solution as the emachines has. The main difference is the integrated graphics will share your RAM with windows. If you buy either, you can always buy a higher-power graphics card and install it later.

Before you purchase,you need to find out if they can be upgraded. I very much doubt they will be able to,pre built machines have little or no room for upgrading.The processor on http://www.walmart.com/catalog/product.do?product_id=14... might bottleneck a highend GPU and the CPU on the other one will most definitely slow down a higher end GPU

.......... i see........ it seems like it might be easier to just custom build my own computer lol Xo but if the ultra game computer cant be upgraded ill just have to live with the graphic...... its better than my current one anyway lol

Tbh,i would go for the self build,the GPU in the first machine is quite a low end card tbh,unless you pay quite a bit more for a pre built machine.

you can upgrade cyberpower PCs just fine. its with mass produced PC sellers like DELL, Acer, HP that use their own BIOS and OEM windows version that will often cause issues. upgrading a cyberpower is just like upgrading any home built unit.

one note. in order to create such a low price, cyberpower uses low end graphic cards and low quality PSU. Its often best to just get the cheapest PSU and card. then purchase an upgrade from newegg since installing those two are rather easy, plenty of how to videos on youtube. then again if you can install a PSU and video card, building a PC from scratch is not that much harder.

if you really want a cheap build this PC is $530 out the door (no tax and free shipping)

then add this video card for $82 out the door (plus it has a $15 main rebate)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

since walmart will charge you tax and shipping, its actually cheaper and a much better gaming option. You can also upgrade the PSU, video card, and CPU at later times.

the athlon II X 4 is not a great gaming CPU and the x2 offers similar results in most games. You can upgrade to a Phenom II x4 once you get more cash.

the ATI 5670 is a much better vidoe card then the G 210, even the ATI 5450 that comes with the newegg PC is better.

Hope this helps..
It's from the recertified list a t newegg,so it's products that have been opened before and marked on clearance but they still oeprate just like their supposed to.

This one doesn't have a GPU but you could buy a cheap one,for the proccesor in this i'd save it value.
