I'm not an expert on building computers, so it's probably not a good idea to take advice from me. Pfft

Here's a discussion thread about the two processors: http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/forum/3...3770-2600k

Here's a review of the GT 640 graphic card: http://techreport.com/articles.x/23179 Here you will also find a list of numbers comparing GT 640 with other cards, like GTX 550 Ti.

It looks like you have one PC with more memory and a bigger hard drive, while the other one has a better processor (?) and a better graphic card, but I may have misunderstood the reviews. Pfft

Ewww PC World Pfft

I'm not too up on the gfx cards currently but i'm sure the 640 beats the 550 loads!

Have a look on overclockers i've bought all my pc parts from them over the years, they have some simlar spec'd systems which work out cheaper and a bit more power Grin !

Basically cba with the hassle of building my own pc lol... Plus I can get 10% from pc world and those 2 are one that stand out (not that they have much to stab out from ;p )
 
Nydema
The overclockers ones i linked to are all built by them all you have to do is put the gfx card in place and fire it up ;P

silly question but do the systems ordered from overclockers come with disc drives? none of the state it in the decription and they're not shown on the images...
 
Nydema
Think most of them do, the few i just looked at list it as optical drive Smile

I go by this website, says the 550ti is better than the 640 - which is why it costs more. Talking between 8 GB and 12 GB you prob won't notice loads of difference. So I'd go for the HP Phoenix.

Hell, spend £50 on a 120GB SSD for your OS and main games you'd play, and pimp that sucka! Grin
