My names Vas, I'm looking towards buying a desktop computer that I will be able to play games and record in fraps with a good amount of frames 60+, maybe even have Skype running in the background. I don't know which one of these desktop computers to pick from. I'm pretty nooby at this stuff. Also after recording my game, skyrim, or bfbc3 or even minecraft, I'm gonna render them with Sony Vegas 10. Choose between these two and tell me which one is best for my standards. Thanks

2nd one: Play.com Galaxy Z68 Motherboard i7 2600K Gaming Computer PC 2TB 16GB DDR3 GTX 560 Ti 1GB
Choosing between these two...
The difference seems to be an i7-2600K w/2TB drive vs i5-2500K with 1TB drive at price difference of £689-£607= £82 ??? For gaming the i7 won't make a difference, but the price difference is so small I'd get the larger drive and the i7.
Get the one with the i7. i7s are quad cores instead of dual cores, meaning much more processing power, which is good if you are running fraps. Going from the 1TB to the 2TB may seem like a big difference, but you probably will not even use 1TB unless you are keeping all your gameplay footage and are recording in HD.
