I seriously need to get a new I have scoured the internet for gaming PC customisation sites (i can build it but generally don't want to as i would like to have it professionally built) I have not got a large budget (using my student loan) so the 2 PCs i have come out with for just over 500quid is

CoolerMaster Elite 430
AMD Phenom™ II X6 1100T Six-Core
Asetek 510LC / Xtremegear Liquid Cooling system w/ 120mm Radiator (Asetek CPU Water Cooling
8GB (4x2GB) PC10666 DDR3/1333mhz
AMD Radeon HD 6770 1GB


AMD A8-3850
8GB (4x2GB) PC10666 DDR3/1333mhz
GTX560 2 gig

I am not totally illiterate when it comes to PCs so i can see the Phenom is better than the A8 but the gtx560 is better than the HD6770. I know both of these cards can easily run STWOR and even games like starcraft 2 and the witcher 2 in highest settings but which rig is better value or more logical to get. I am leaning towards the first one simply because i wont need to change my whole rig if i want to change my GFX whereas i would if i wanted to change the A8.
Also am i over looking anything will anything be bottle necked or anything?

I would get the first one because of it's 6 cores, it's nice watercooling setup which will let you overclock and it's running a decent graphics card which can handle any games. I doubt there would be any bottleneck.
