I'm looking to buy a new gaming PC. These are two I have found that I'm thinking are good but I need someone who knows something about computer's opinion lol... I'm looking to spend around $800 or $900 so if anyone has some better pc's then please tell me. I want to be able to run games like Diablo 3, BF3, Minecraft at max graphics with smooth fps at probably 1600x900. So here are the pc's.

1.) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

PROCESSOR
- Intel Core i5-3450 3.1Ghz
RAM
- 8GB DDR3 1333
HARD DRIVE
- 1TB SATA-III 6.0 Gb/s 7200RPM
GRAPHICS CARD
- AMD Radeon HD 6670 1GB PCI-e Graphics

2.) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

PROCESSOR
- Intel Core i5-3550 3.3Ghz
RAM
- 8GB DDR3 1333
HARD DRIVE
- 1TB SATA-III 6.0 Gb/s 7200RPM
GRAPHICS CARD
- AMD Radeon HD 7750 1GB PCI-e Graphics

Also, I'm sort of worried about ordering from Cyberpowerpc. I've read that packages often get damaged while being shipped and take awhile to get there. I just want to know if they're actually a reliable source to buy from.

The first one has a better graphics card, and you would be buying from Newegg it looks like, not Cyberpower. It just is a Cyberpower brand pc. Neither will play BF3 at max graphics

Thanks for your reply. So the 6670 is better? And would NewEgg ship the computer to me, and not Cyberpower? Also, would this PC be able to run BF3 at like med-high graphics?

Actually, I know Alienware is usually overpriced and everything but how would you compare this computer to the cyberpower one?

- 8GB (2x4GB) Dual Channel DDR3 at 1333MHz
- Intel® Core™ i5-2320 3.0GHz (6MB Cache) with Turbo Boost Technology 2.0
- 1GB GDDR5 NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 555
- 1TB SATA 3Gb/s (7,200RPM) 32MB Cache

I can get this pc for about $849.99. Not exactly sure how well it compares to the cyberpowerpc, but I believe the GTX 555 is better than the Radeon HD 6670 (correct me if I'm wrong)

those are prebuilt models sold to newegg by cyberpower. i would go on cyberpower.com and try building your own from there. use the GAMER XTREME 1000 model as the base and customize from there.

prebuilt are overpriced as CP must make money, then newegg has to as well. cut out the middle man.
