I have been doing some research and have found two computers that I like.

(Sorry background knowledge, I have 3 kids who all use the computer (mostly facebook, flash games etc) I like to download, stream films by torrents and XMBC, My wife uses the PC for internet banking etc)


Which of these two would be the better option? Quad core (more expensive) or Dual Core (more ram)?






(sorry if i am not allowed to post links i will delete them)


Cheers in advance

for what you are looking to use it for either will work fine, the second one sounds a little fishy (pirated software and stuff) all the games that he has listed means that he would have spent more than he is asking for the computer (Tomb Raider alone is around 40). Also the brand/type of "dual core" isnt listed, so I would find out more infor before going for that one but you dont need that much RAM for what you want to do, 4G should be fine.

The link for the dual core died, but I would probably recommend it. You don't really have any CPU intensive requirements.


But since I can not see the link, I would have to infer that greengiant is correct.
