Which computer is better for gaming

I have recently asked a few questions on here because I will be getting my first gaming PC (custom or prebuilt). I was going to go custom, but then went on Cyberpower and the build on Cyberpower was cheaper by about $80. I want to play games such as BF3 on ultra or high (online) and Skyrim. Which one is better? Or neither?

  1. Looks like performance is a tie.
  2. What would a prebuilt based on the Core i5-2500k cost at CyberPowerPC?

    I got $1700 with the same build with the exception of Core i5.
  4. The 2nd.
  5. 2nd, but what is the PSU brand?

    It just says standard power supply.
  7. I would not trust it then.
  8. Yeah, I would go with the 2nd as well, but prebuilt power supplies are usually low quality.
