Hello, it has been a while since i have made a post on the forums, although i do read the threads here quite often.
I've been looking at getting a new computer to play games such as ARMA2 and Battlefield3 on the highest settings and other games that require a powerful computer, i like to play my games with great graphics to get the most out of the game. :)

I don't really want to spend too much on the computer, i'm looking to spend £400-£550 max
I have found a few at a local store but i don't know much about computers so i thought i'd ask you guys if it is worth me buying either of these or should i just save up another £400/£600 and grab something for about £1000-£1200 but i really want it as soon as possible.

I live in England, if you know where i can get a better one from for the price range i'm looking in place feel free to recommend it to me!
Much appreciated!
Thank you for reading!

-Just a few questions-

Is 3ghz enough?
Are the graphics cards good enough?
Are the processors good enough?
Will i possibly be able to record and play without getting a really bad frame rate?
Will i be able to play games smoothly on high settings such as GW2/BF3/ARMA3?
Is everything more than good enough to enjoy my games again?

Thanks again.

I would just keep saving up because the graphics card in those build a basically mid range and can no way be palyable on the highest settings in games like Battlefield 3.

Thanks for the input, i know i'm asking a lot for that price hehe,
I'd be fine playing on mid-range graphics as long as it doesn't struggle and will be smooth.

EDIT:
