There is no reason for those systems to cost that much. I would get a i7 2600 build, its cheaper and more powerful, and isnt obsolete (like the systems you listed).

You would do much better building the system yourself.

I also dont know anything about that PSU manufacturer. I can't say if they are good or not.

They are only that expensive cause i live in Iceland :p

But which one would you choose cause they both have the same PSU..

number 2!!

Well graphically the 1st one is better by a little bit. Generally the 6850 beats out the 460. As for CPU though, the top one loses out to the #2 PC. However the 2nd PC is not justifiable at such a high cost especially since SB is out. I have a 955 personally and it runs fine. I think getting the 965 (so the 1st build) is pretty good idea. I use PS5 too and it runs smoothly and the 6850 would be able to have great crossfire performance in the future.

Are you building these builds yourself or are you buying them?

January 22, 2011 2:09:35 AM

Im buying them.
January 22, 2011 2:12:19 AM

I am just having a hard time choosing because isn't the 2nd one with a more future proof motherboard?
And the GTX 460 is actually overclocked so....

BTW if i do buy the 2nd should i invest in getting a better Graphics card or CPU?

Better GPU = better performance in games rather than CPU. CPU would be a better decision if your going to use things like CAD or whatever. Video editing. blah blah.

The 460 is "OC'd" Factory overclock is a load of bull crap. Just do it yourself you'll save yourself at least 20$ US. And you should looking into building them yourself, you'll save yourself a lot of money.

I would be saving a lot of money in the US but here i would probably triple the price of making my computer myself....Which is total BS.

BTW is the Intel i5 better than the i7?
What is the difference? cause im thinking of getting i7 2600k or i5 2600(Later on)
And what is SLI is that just connecting 2 Graphics Cards together like i buy another exact same GIGABYTE GTX 460 and connect it some how or...?
January 22, 2011 1:24:01 PM

I'm pretty sure the i7 series are designed to be better than the i5's, not sure how it figures on an old i5 versus a sandy bridge effort though,
and yes, Sli is linking two or more graphics cards together using a bridge to connect them,
but then your psu has to be powerful enough to handle both cards.

Thanks a lot ;)  But i know this question is like asking Pepsi or Coke but i have been watching ALOT of benchmarks for Graphics Cards and i would like your guys opinion....
Would it be smarter for me to buy another GTX 460(so i can add the two together) ot
Or buy to new Graphics Cards?
BTW which is better for FPS:
Sapphire ATI Radeon HD6950 or EVGA nVidia GeForce GTX480 1536MB DDR5
