I am looking to purchase one of two Desktop Gaming rigs:
1. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
and 2. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

I would like to know which one of these rigs has the better graphics and performs the best on games like Crysis 2 and Skyrim. I would like to play on as high a settings as possible but still have at least 40 FPS.
If there are any better options; prebuilt-wise. Go ahead and add it to your reply.
If you guys can help it is greatly appreciated. :)

first is : iBUYPOWER Gamer 510FX Desktop PC AMD FX-Series FX-4100(3.6GHz) 8GB DDR3 1TB HDD Capacity AMD Radeon HD 6670 1GB Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit

second is : iBUYPOWER Gamer EXTREME 923i Desktop PC Intel Core i5 2320(3.00GHz) 8GB DDR3 1TB HDD Capacity AMD Radeon HD 6770 1GB Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit

They have the same video card. Google the processors (i5-2320 vs. AMD FX-4100) to see which is faster -- I'd guess they are both good enough that the 6770 (a good card) will be the limit gaming.

Google the name of the game you want to play and the name of the video card to see reports of how well the video card will run the game. Either system has enough CPU to run the game. (At the risk of flames, I'd take an I5-2320 over the AMD FX-4100 but you may ahve a use case (video edit?) where the amd is faster.

Thanks for the google search ideas and The 6670 and 6770 are the same cards? how is that?, at the risk of flames? haha but yeah I read that the fx-4100 is faster than the i5 so I'm gonna go with more CPU power of course.

I also have decided what I'm gonna do. I'm taking the 510fx for the processor; since I like AMD and ATI better, I'm more familiar with their cards and I'm going to purchase a 6850 1 Gb so swap the 6670 1Gb for. Which raises more questions like: Is the PSU able to provide plenty of power for everything?, is the MOBO even able to have this GPU hooked-up to it?, is the case large enough? I'm still a bit concerned with all of that.
