Hi there, I'm trying to decide on which PC to buy

This asus essentio desktop has n12 Gig RAM and  1TB hard drive  for $550

http://tinyurl.com/p6bprd5

Mean while this HP pavilion p7-1534 has 8 GIG Ram and 1TB hd is $490

http://tinyurl.com/nhcazt3

The Hard drives are both fine for me and I've had success and good use with HP PCs, but this Asus for only $60 more has better ram. Is it worth it? Are Asus PC's good? Since I've never used one, anyone who has knowledge of them, feel free to let me know.

I plan on using it as a casual PC and gaming PC, but not some extreme gaming PC. I already have a video card to put in it

Thoughts/opinions or reasons why you'd buy one or the other?
 Thanks

Both of them have nearly same specifications.

 

You want a wireless features? If yes , HP have wireless card. (This is expicit different.)

 

If you want many RAM, Asus have 12GB already.

 

Also Asus have built-in AMD Radeon HD 8350. But HP not have.

 

Hope this helps you.

Thank you.

That is a error on the BestBuy site for the graphics as it is a 7560D and the HP does have a integrated graphics as it is APU which both systems have. The issue here is the power supply wattage as both systems have tiny power supplies and depending on the graphics card your putting in, chances are that it won't be able to power it up.

Then the HP desktop should be fine as 8GB of ram is plenty for casual gaming.

One other thing to note is that the Asus has an AMD Radeon HD 8350, from what I've read that's a pretty good video card that comes with it.

 

However it doesn't have wireless internet access while the HP has a wireless. And I should also mention that the HP being sold is the display model. Not even in it's original box (since the on display tower is literally their last one)

The 8350 is a low end rebranded graphics card from the 7000 series. Which graphics card do you intend to use?

I prefer the Asus machine not just for it's extra RAM, but also because HP tends to include more junkware on their products. So, a lot of HP's software is disposable and certainly does nothing to enhance system stability. Both machines have on-chip video that's certainly sufficient for casual gaming, so your old graphics card may not be superior. My wife and daughters play Diablo III, WOW, and Wizards 101 on systems with lower specs without a gripe.

It will actually depend on what you are doing. Basically an 8GB RAM is more than enough for casual gaming and multitasking. If you are not opening more than 10 applications all at the same time, you won't really feel the difference between a PC with 12GB RAM and 8GB RAM. However an extra $60 for an extra 4GB memory is also a good value for money.
