Which computer should I buy?

Hello,

I'm looking to purchase a new desktop computer for watching movies, playing games (The Sims), listening to music, video chatting, connecting to my tv, etc. Which of the two systems would be best for that?

*HP Pavilion p2-1105 Desktop PC {Processor Intel Pentium G620T; Hard Drive Size 500GB; Memory (RAM) 4GB; Video Graphics Intel HD Graphics; Operating System Genuine Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit}

AMD Radeon HD 6410D integrated graphics; Operating System

More about which computer
  1. I wouldn't buy an HP, but for the budget, I would go with the first one since it's an intel.
  2. Hello,

    I don't like to reccomend pre-built computers as they normally contain last gen products in them for the same price as current gen products.

    BTW your links you sent do not work - as they ask for a zip code.

    However - looking at both specifications(in your post) - they are both "crusty" IMO.

    What exactly is your budget? Maybe a better desktop can be reccomended for you.

    I would like to keep the cost low. $400 or less...
    Here are the links again but from amazon instead:

    HP Pavilion p6-2100 Desktop http://www.amazon.com/HP-p6-2100-Pavilion-Desktop/dp/B006VFSQAY/ref=pd_sim_sbs_e_2
    HP Pavilion p2-1105 Desktop PC http://www.amazon.com/HP-Pavilion-p2-1105-Desktop-Processor/dp/B007CKB0VE/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1332962902&sr=1-1
  4. The AMD A4 version (HP p6-2100 model) will give you better graphics capabilities than the P2-1105 HP. However - the HP model will give you better CPU performance.
