The hdd from my old computer that is 5 years old has finally died. Everytime I try to start the computer the hdd makes a kind of clicking sound. I've searched this and it usually means that the hdd is dead, so I'm hopefully correct. Now I've been looking for a new system. Something no more than $700, two systems caught my eye. First: HP pavilion p6520f, Amd anthlon 2 635 quad core at 2.9ghz, 6gb ram, 1tb hdd, and other bells and whistles all for $529. The system seems a little bit too good for that price.  P4119" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">http://www.staples.com/StaplesProductDisplay?langId=-1&...
Second choose: Asus essentio, intel core i5 at 3.2ghz, 8gb ram, 1tb hdd, and other few nice features, all for $679. http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Asus+-+Essentio+Desktop+wit...

I will be putting a nvidia 9600gt video card in the system that I purchase. I will be using the systems for just light gaming mostly.
Any advice would be much appreciated. Thank you.

If you plan on doing some light gaming for the most part, I'd recommend going with the Asus. I think that you'll find the i5 a bit better in regard to gaming. Plus, you're getting more RAM and in general, more reliability.
