Hello! Recently my computer died. :( But... I am getting a new one, the thing is i am not very good at reading the computers specifacations and stuff like that so i have picked 2 computers and i wanted to know which one is better. The choises are...

AMD X2 4200+ AM2 Athlon AMD ATHLON X2 4000+ 2MB DDR2 MEMORY 160GB HARD DRIVE DVD RW DUAL LAYER 3.5" CARD READER 8500GT 512MB GRAPHICS WINDOWS XP HOME 4+ USB PORTS
OR
INTEL CORE2 DUO 775 2.2GHz

INTEL CORE2 DUO E4500 775 ASUS MOTHERBOARD 1024 MB DDR2 RAM 320 GB HARD DRIVE DVD RW DUAL LAYER 3.5" CARD READER 256 MB GRAPHICS WINDOWS XP HOME

4+ USB PORTS
I am mainly looking for how much RAM there is, the Processor speed and the Graphics Card. I would apriciate it if someone could help me. Thanks.

A little more info would be nice, do you have links to the PCs? Are you building your own, or buying?

Yeah, neither of those systems is really a complete gaming rig. One has a good CPU (Core 2) but what appears to be integrated video, but the other's video card is by no means a gaming one.

If you want, I can help you build a PC with a website's builder, such as Ibuypower or Puget's website or something. But you would have to give me your $$$ budget.

My computer is being custom built. Thanks for your offer steelsabre but im alrite as i am. Thanks for your help. So the CORE2 DUO is alrite for the CPU. So what graphic card would be recomended, I prefer Nvidia cards if you can tell me which one would be a deasent card.

Just change the video card on first one, x1900GT maybe for 90$ X2 4200+ is a decent dual core
