Hello,I found 3 gaming systems for around the same price on newegg.i want the best one for gaming but i'm a bit confused on which one would be better.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... this one has the new intel core i-7 3.4 ghz,4gb ram,and a geforce gtx550 ti


http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... this one has the intel core i-5 3.3 ghz,8gb of ram,and a geforce gtx 560 (processor is two steps down while graphics card is one step up)


http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... and finally this one which is almost identical to the 2nd one.

so pretty much the first has best processor with least great graphics and half the ram.2nd and 3rd have least great processors but better gpu and twice the ram.

feedback would be highly appreciated :)

A $1000 budget and your looking at those?
Build one man, and slaughter those puppies,
check the build guides up the top of homebuild section http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/forum/312822-13-bestconfi...
there are some great builds for under a grand in there and the 2500k is THE chip you want if your sticking with intel
Moto

The last one is the best. It can't overclock, but the GPU is more powerful.

Now I come from the Homebuilt section of the forum. I think it's a cryin shame to buy when you can build! But I'll stick with cyberpower for you :) 

What are you using the PC for? I see alot of CPU heavy builds. Honestly, this might be the most even build: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... But just know, we could put together a PC for you that was probably $200 cheaper. $200.
Hope that helps!

As they are both saying build your own I used to think it looked hard, its as easy as tying your shoes with window 7 as a os.

oh i would know how to build one.i am decent with computer hardware :)  .by building one do you mean individually ordering each part? if so where should i order the parts?
i didnt use ibuypower or cyberpower because of the ridiculous shipping costs which are like 100+ dollars.the one on newegg are from ibuypower but with less shipping costs,they seemed pretty reasonable.
the comp is actually gonna be a bday gift so i think i might just go with the 3rd one,im feeling lazy :D

It's because it's an i5-2400. Only the K series CPU's can overclock, and those must be on a P67 board. But it's ok, that processor will DEMOLISH any AMD offering. Even the Hexcores.
