Well, I've been looking around for quite some time for a solid gaming computer. I understand computers better then I'd say most people, but I'm not really tech savvy. I found 2 computers that have different prices but seem to be generally the same thing. I can spot a few minor differences between them but nothing that would really make the prices so different.
I was hoping that someone that understood computers better then me could take a look at the spec's of the computers and tell me what makes the prices so different or is one just cheaper then the other. Help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! :D

And if you have any suggestions on other computers feel free! :D I would prefer anything under a 1000$, that being my max.

Wow! That's actually really nice. It may end up being my purchase. After looking around some more, I found these 3, how do you think they handle being a hundred dollars+ cheaper? Maybe future upgrading. By the way, thanks a lot for taking the time to actually look! I really appreciate it. :D

They all have weaker graphics card and it is crucial to have a solid graphics card for gaming as most games performances are bound to the graphics card.

Isn't the Geforce GTX 560 (On the third in this list) a bit better card then Radeon HD 6850?
I was looking at a site that compared graphics cards.

And what about this? Seemingly all the same spec's but a bit cheaper.

Sorry for hammering you with so many questions. This is my first personal computer purchase (I'm 15) and I just want to make sure everything is done right.

Technically, the GTX560 isn't far behind the 6850 in terms of performance but the 6850 still out muscles it. That one has a AMD processor and in general computing it is slower then the Intel but in GPU bound games, it performs very similar to the Intel with an exception to CPU bound games where the Intel performs better in games. But if you want to save money, then the AMD would be fine as a gaming system.

If you haven't bought the machine yet, I'd suggest upgrading it to a GTX570 board.

I love every minute of gaming I do on mine. :thumbsup:
