    Having to choose between computers

    Alright so I have a 500 dollar budget, but I'm not looking at a top of the line computer that can run BF3 at super high graphics, just a computer that can run a game like black light retribution SMOOTHLY. Here are the 2 computers:

    CyberpowerPC Black Gamer Ultra Gua250 Desktop PC - Walmart.com

    iBuyPower 'Build Your Own' Gaming Desktop Bundle - Walmart.com


    On the 2nd one I'm getting all the default parts, but like I said my budget is 500(even willing to go a bit higher) and that total is 480 so if I had any parts I could upgrade on that 2nd choice which one should I?

    Wouldn't it be better to build your own? Blacklight: Retribution Graphics Card list meets system requirements for Blacklight: Retribution Heres a list of GPUS that could run Blacklight. The first computer you mentioned has a very low end GPU so unless you're planning to get a better graphics card, I would recommend the second.

    Find a cheap OS on eBay.

    The A10 should play well. My sister has an A6 in a cheap laptop and plays Minecraft at 30-45fps.

    They can also crossfire with other AMD cards. Research if you're interested. I think they're only compatible with 6xxx series GPUs.

    I think you'd actually have better luck on Newegg.com - Computer Parts, Laptops, Electronics, and More!
