I am wondering about 2 computers.
1) http://www.bestbuy.ca/en-CA/product/hewlett-packard-hp-...

That computer is $619 dollars, and I can ship for free to me, or pick it up.

2) http://pcpartpicker.com/p/UX1i

That computer is $599, but if I order all of the parts, I need to factor in shipping, and if I get them all from a local parts store it costs around $760

I am wondering your guys' opinion on which one you would buy? The custom one will be easier upgraded and I will feel better having built it myself, but the other is very convenient, and seems to have very nice specs.

I attached a poll to the thread and if you guys could leave me a nice responce, or at least vote in the poll, that would be awesome.

Thanks, dToast

I am located in BC.

Why would you say no to the HP?

Any suggested changes on the other build?

I do not need the 1t hard drive, I only need 500gb. Also I think I would go for win8.
What fps do you think the above build would get on BF3 on high?
