hey all, so i was going to build my own computer but i dont really have the time to build one now. maybe further down the road. anyway, ive narrowed down by searches for a gaming computer to


of the two, which do you guys think i should buy? i plan on using it solely for world of warcraft lol. to play on the highest settings availble would be nice. also, i might bring it to college with me in a year so its got to be well rounded but leaning mostly towards gaming. your honest opinions would be greatly appreciated.

Even with an FX-8150 the i3 will probably be faster for gaming (and especially for WoW)

Drop the 8GB of RAM down to 4GB, and even the 1TB HDD down to 750 or 500GB if you have to, sink the extra cash in to a 6770 or 7770 and you will have a much better gaming experience overall.

edit: of course, being best buy, you probably can't do that . . . so the real recommendation would be to write down the specs and buy a similar machine with a 7770 in it from a real computer store.
