good morning and merry christmas to all


please, i need your kind advice on a cheap pc i am trying to build for my young cousin  who is twenty one and need something better than his old parent's leo pentium 2.6 pc (no hyper threading)


unfortunately our budget is very limited and we have to look only for those two pcs's


used fujitsu siemens esprimo p5720 (cpu intel e7200, 2 gb ddr2, 160 gb hd, dvd writer)

euros 125 - perfect condtion with six month warranty


intel g530 cpu with brand new parts (asus motherboard p8h61-mle , ddr3 2 gb ram, wd 250 hd, samsung dvd writer, xilense 350 watts psw, asus vento mid tower, for euros 250


i have the same celeron pc as above which cost me almost 440 euros two years ago


i think that the overall performance of both the pc's would be the same and we have to look to other factors like hd capacity for our final decision 


my cousin want to run anything like photoshop, virtual dj, fl studio


many thanks in advance


merry christmas to all

I would go with the second choice. It is a slightly newer CPU, newer RAM, etc. It also allows for some upgrading in the future, like adding RAM since it is DDR3.
