The first one is BY FAR the better of all of these, though the graphics card will leave some to be desired, overall that is a great build if you can get it for a good price.

 

The second and third PC's are all older stuff, the processors are at least... 4 years old, then either 4 or 6GB of RAM vs 16? yea if they are similar prices go for the first one.

i missed out on the first one i think it went for like 500 quid...anyway i have my eye on this one what are your thoughts on this build?

 

Case: NZXT Phantom 410. I've added 140mm fan (3x) including a fan controller NZXT Sentry 2. 

PROCESSOR (CPU): AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition running at 3.4GHz. I have never overclocked it, but it should be possible given that I have a decent CPU cooler.

RAM: Corsair Vengeance 8GB running at 1600MHz 

Graphics Card: ASUS NVIDIA GEFORCE GTX 650 DIRECTCU 1GB.

The first build is still the better choice due to the high performance CPU.
