Help in picking a prebuilt desktop for gaming w/ 1000 - 1300 budget

I am trying to decide which of these acer predator systems for gaming would be best. I am very new to PC gaming.

I am most interested in playing skyrim and total war series games at ultra detail. Of course, I would like it to take me into the future of gaming as well. This is basically the same computer with slightly different configurations at 1299. I am especially interested in the last link since it provides an nvidia gtx 770. However, after reading Tom's hardware reviews of the 770, it recommends a 600W power supply in this model only provides 500W. Do you think this would be a problem?

If you have a different configuration that provides similar value at that price let me know.

Thank you very much

  1. I would get the 4th link simply because it has the gtx 770, and 8 gb of ram is quite enough, also if you wish to upgrade the storage, just put in another hdd, and you can get it with just 60 or 70$ more later down the line if you need it.
  2. Thank you very much for your answer. I was also leaning with that build as well. Do you think it would be a problem though if the power supply is only 500W? According to the review below they recommended at least 600W?

  3. Its not gonna be that much of a problem if you dont try to sli or add an ssd next to the hdd, the 3rd choice imo doesnt justify its price, because everything is the same only it has a worse gpu and 4gb+ ram, and that doesnt help you much
  4. you should close the thread by picking an answer.
