#4 is the best deal, especially considering the warranty.

I have no experience with amd, is it any less inferior than nvidia? My previous pc was HP thus I am leaning slightly towards the same model...

AMD (ATI) or Nvidia does not matter, all are Intel systems with different GPU's and configs, #4 has the best price and Warranty. 8GB ram is plenty for most tasks and HDD can be upgraded for less than the price difference (even if we include ram upgrade).

Alright. What would be your next best pick? I am not sure how much ram is here, might be overpriced.

@Kamen_BG Lol....going from a locked i7 to an unlocked i5, doesn't necessarily constitute an upgrade. Specially if the OP is not going to, or doesn't know how to OC :) 

I also recommend #4, but sell off that GPU and buy something more powerful, an HD 7770 atleast.

OP aka me, is a tech noob and as such is merely looking at prebuilts and the above are the better ones that fit my budget.
