second is pretty decent keep in mind that the case isnt the greatest. could be better but parts wise it should play basically eevry game on max @ 720p and @ 1080p many games on high

The second one for£580 is a better deal.

The case isn't the greatest imo, but the specs are good. The GTX 560 is a good mid-range card. Runs any game at High settings on 1080p. Can max a lot of games too. They also overclock really well.

I'm not sure if 500W is enough for that system; it probably is, though.

Why are you choosing AMD over Intel and nVidia?

no dual core will be worth the investment when next-gen launches LOL

Second one easily GTX 560 easily beats HD 7750. Once you get into the higher resolutions..the CPU power becomes less of factor and it's all about GPU performance.

Prebuilts, Intel is far more costly.

The GTX 560 sells the second one. The first has more long term value.

So if I pay a tad more and get them to make the second one with a different case its a good build right?

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I think that it'd be better for you to get a PSU with more wattage

How much more?

It's okay if you only want one GPU, but if you want some future proofing maybe you should get more, like 750w or so.

go with the second one but you are gonna want to get more ram, with 4GB you are at the bare minimum, add more ram if you decide to get the second one, if you decide to upgrade to a more powerful graphics card that PSU might hold you back just depends. dont even think about SLI with that PSU otherwise for the price the system is a go.
