    It all depends on what you want to do with it. If you want a gaming machine, the first one is better. For everything else the second one (including casual gaming).

    I would go for the 2nd one as the i7-4790 is significantly better than the other also double the storage and RAM ;-)

    I'm saying they both have their own merits. As far as gaming goes, the GTX 760 is significantly superior to the GTX 750. Most games are GPU dependent, so in a lot of cases the performance differences between the i7 & i5 are negligible.

    they are both good specs but if you want something that will do exactly what you want why dont you build your own?
    You know he grew up as a little shitspark from the old shitflint and then he turned into a shitbonfire and driven by the winds of his monumental ignorance he turned into a raging shitfirestorm. If I get to be married to Barb I'll have total control of Sunnyvale and then I can unleash the shitnami tidal wave that will engulf Ricky and extinguish his shitflames forever. And with any luck he'll drown in the undershit of that wave. Shitwaves.

    If it was me i'd go with 2nd one. (but i don't play games on PC)

    First one would probably be better for gaming but specs on 2nd seem a bit better for general use.
    More memory, bigger HDD and twice as much memory.
    also gigabit ethernet (although i suspect the first would have this too.)
    dvd RW although not a deal breaker.

    As an Office/Home PC for general use, the first one.
    If it's for gaming, the second purely for the GPU.

    Both have their pro's and con's hence why the price is the same for spec for machines that are meant for different environments.

    I would expect these machines are in the region of approximately £600 - £700 and maybe manufactured by ZooStorm?

    Pros of PC 1:

    • Better graphics


    Pros of PC 2:

    • Better processor
    • Double the RAM
    • Double the storage
    • OS is slightly better (8.1 is better than 8 but that may be a typo...)

    Def 2nd option as do you really want Optimus Prime sitting under you desk?

    But it is still a no brainer to me buy the 2nd and if gaming is important then replace the Graphics Card if you find the 760 is piss poor.

    Thanks to akimba

    Is it me or is there no processor(CPU) there? If that's the case then yes, I think there is something else you need.
    What if the Hokey Cokey "IS" what it's all about?
