Hey, this is my first time on these forums and I am in need of a little assistance. I managed to save up enough money from my job and I am looking to buy a nice gaming desktop for a cheap price. The games I play are not too graphic intensive (WoW, Starcraft 2, League of Legends, etc..) so I am not looking for top of the notch stuff.

I only have between $600-$800 to spend so I am looking for something cheap.

I was looking around on newegg.com and I found these two comps.

and

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16883229181

What do you guys think? I believe they are both good enough to play the games I listed but are they worth the price tag? Which one would you guys prefer? And finally if anyone wants, would they be able to link me to something better on newegg in my price range if the two computer above don't cut it.

Due to bad experiences in the past, building my own computer is not an option so please don't recommend it.

Thanks to anyone who posts their opinions!

either of those would be ok setups so long as you leave the settings on those games pretty low. if you wanna have the settings bumped up a little bit then this might be a good option and it's not too much more expensive. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16883229168. i have a 5750 in my comp and on wow i can have all settings to the max and it plays just fine. so for only 50 dollars more you can get a good card that will play most games at decent settings. again, if playing games with all the eye candy on is not something you are worried about then either of those options you had before should suffice.

well... i'd say the cyber power. it has a better cpu, and graphics card. a little less ram but you don't need more than 4 unless you are video editing. and imo 500 gigs of hard drive space is pretty good. so yeah Cyberpower looks like the best bet.
