Decision between two desktops.

Hi everyone. I'm currently looking to buy a new system that is already pre-built and can run most new games on high graphics at good fps. I have found these two desktops that are both priced at $1,150. These are the two computers:

1.) HP Pavilion HPE h9-1120t Phoenix
- 3rd Generation Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-3770 quad-core processor [3.4GHz, 8MB Shared Cache]
- 10GB DDR3-1333MHz SDRAM [3 DIMMs]
- 2TB 7200 rpm SATA hard drive
- 1GB DDR5 NVIDIA GeForce GTX 550 Ti [2 DVI, mini-HDMI. VGA adapter]


2.) Alienware X51 Mini HD Gaming Desktop - COMES WITH DIABLO III :D
- 3rd Gen Intel® Core™ i7-3770 (3.4GHz, 8MB Cache, w/ Hyper-Threading and Turbo Boost 2.0)
- 8GB Dual Channel DDR3 at 1600MHz - 2 DIMMS
- 1GB GDDR5 NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 555
- 1TB SATA 3Gb/s (7,200RPM) 32MB Cache


I'm not looking for any posts about building my own PC or using another website like cyberpowerpc. I'm going to need to finance a computer because I don't have the money at the moment. I plan to play games like Diablo III, Battlefield 3, and other new high-graphical games at high-ultra graphics with a smooth FPS, at either 1600x900 or 1920x1080. Thanks in advance :)

    You can get the same gaming experience with an I5-2400 and the same video cards. That should save you a ton of money.

    If you intend to use the system mainly for gaming you should look at MUCH less CPU and equal or stronger video. That will game better for the same dollars spent.

    Memory is fairly cheap now, but anything over 6gb is not helping you. The 10GB you have spec'd in the first system is just adding $50 to the price without helping you game. The 8GB in the second is closer to what you'd want to buy.
