hey guys, after finally being done w/ my medical boards, i'm getting back into serious gaming and was looking at these 3 desktops on tigerdirect and bestbuy.
I was also contemplating building my own but i don't have the expertise or the time yet to take that longer route and from what i know, these 3 seem like a good bargain for what they are offering. My first choice:
iBUYPOWER POWER TG930SLC Gaming PC - 3rd Gen. Intel Core i5-3350P 3.1GHz, 8GB DDR3, 1TB HDD, DVDRW, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660, Liquid Cooling, Windows 8 64-bit -- $879.00
*** why i liked this computer was that it offers the GTX 660 which is a huge step up from the other desktops i've seen of similar price everywhere. Along with liquid cooling. The RAM and the i5 have been bothering me though. I wanted to know, how important is it that i buy a pc w/ a stronger processor. If there will be a noticeable difference between the i5 and i7, i am willing to put up another few hundreds for that....which is why, my second option is a core i7. This is my first serious computer so all help will be greatly appreciated!
*PLEASE TELL ME HOW IMPORTANT IT IS TO HAVE A GOOD PROCESSOR AS COMPARED TO SIMPLY HAVING A TOP-NOTCH GRAPHIC CARD!2nd choice:
iBUYPOWER SUPREME TG931SLC Gaming PC - 3rd Gen. Intel Core i7-3770 3.4GHz, 16GB DDR3, 500GB HDD, 120GB SSD, DVDRW, ATI Radeon HD 7850, Liquid Cooling, Windows 8 64-bit
