Hi everyone, before you help me pick the best pc please forget about personal preference coz I know many people prefer intel. I am going to list 2 pc's and would like to get advice on which pc would be the better choice strictly for GAMING.

First pc.
CPU: AMD Phenom ii X4 925
MoBo: ECS A785GM-AD3
GPU: Asus GTX750Ti-PH-2GD5
PSU: 700w
Ram: 8gig ddr3 1333
OS: Win7 pro 64bit

Second pc.
CPU: i7 2600 (not the 'K' not the 'S')
MoBo: Foxcon H61MXE
GPU: Asus GTX750Ti-PH-2GD5
PSU: 700w
Ram: 8gig ddr3 1333
OS: Win7 pro 64bit

Thanx in advance for any help.

Thanx for your answer, so the second pc would run more demanding games?
I compared the two CPU's and the i7 came up on top but I can't seem to find a site to compare the motherboards.
But anyway, so the second pc would outperform the first?

i7-2600 is two years newer than Phenom II X4 925. Also 925 is slowest Phenom II X4 while 2600 is about fastest i7-2xxx.

 

Video card limits more than CPU on gaming.
