  2. IF the amd had 8gm ram but the i5 had 6gb, i assmue i5 is still the better choice? I thought so just making sure, thanks
  3. Could you show me the link for the computers? I need to see the spec to decide, such as graphics etc. Seems you are buying a prebuilt computer rather than DIY.
  4. Sure :) I will be updating the power supply to around 700w, and buying a new graphics card.

    Here are the links

    Ok, if you are getting a graphics card then definately i5. AMD if you plan to use its intergraded graphics without discrete cards.
  6. Your links are not working for me.

    No game will use more than 2-3gb of ram by itself. 8gb is usual, but 4gb will still be ok.

    A prebuilt is good if you like it just as it is, and it will not ever get any upgrades.

    Once you start changing things our for gaming, you will do better assembling one yourself.

    What is your budget?
