I need some help with the choices, I am buying a new desktop for gaming and I don't have many choices from my country computer store:

I want to buy this:

DELL Vostro 260MT ( DE 755 )

- Intel® CoreTM i5-2400
(3.1Ghz, 6MB Cache)
- Intel HD Graphics
- LCD Monitor 18" IN1930
- Optical Drive: DVD+RW
- DELL USB Keyboard
- Mouse / Mouse Pad
- DOS (Free Software Installation)
- 1 Year Warranty (Part & Labor)

Retail Price: 639$

I want to know if this model has option to upgrade to new GPU card and what is the limit.

And this custom build:

* LCD Monitor ACER 21.5" X223 HQW
* HDD: 1TB / RAM: 4GB DDR3
* M/B ASUS P7P55D-E Green
(Built in Sound+GLAN)
* VGA Card PCI-E Asus EN210 1GB
* Casing ATX W/Power supply 24pins
* Mouse/Keyboard Connectland
* DVD-RW/Speaker Logitech S150 US
* Mouse Pad
• Intel Core i3-540 3.0GHz/4MB =$885
• Intel Core i3-550 3.2GHz/4MB =$900
• Intel Core i5-760 2.8GHz/8MB =$990

I need help, I know that my country store doesn't have good GPU with these builds. However, I am planning to upgrade it so I want to know what should be my choice if I want to use this for gaming. Which is better for ability to upgrade in the future from these builds.

Anyway, here is my local store website and you might browse a bit and give me some best option: www.

I have budget of 1000$

Thanks in advance,

Honestly if you got the Custom build with the i5 2400 (If possible) and then later changed the graphics card. But if not an option. Get the Dell and just a better GPU later on. they are both about tid for tat.
