    Question Need help deciding which one to buy

    So instead of building one from the bottom I decided to look through eBay for any good machines available for sale and the top two most sold ones where these ones:

    1st:
    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/ULTRA-FAST...item2c79fba63f

    2nd:
    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/ULTRA-FAST...item1c42af5d2a

    I understand that they are both good but I am looking for a machine that can handle the current games such as Fracry 4 plus the upcoming games such as AC Syndicate.

    If none of the above ones are good enough then I am also willing to build one if it comes down it. My budget is £400-£600

    @MrTomBlack Where did you buy the components from? I've trying all sorts of websites like amazon, scan.co.uk but no matter what I do the price comes to be a little over £700. Let me know where you bought it from pelase. Thanks.

    - - - Updated - - -

    After the long hunt for all components, I was finally able to find a site with much cheaper prices. I have replaced some of the components but I think they are similar.
    Here is the link:
    http://secure.newegg.com/Shopping/ShoppingCart.aspx?submit=view

    I think this should do it. Price range is just what I prefer as well. Please let me know if I need to make any changes. Any advice is appreciated, thanks.

    You'd save a lot of money and if you choose to build the PC instead and if you go for your price from THOSE computers you'd get parts that will last you longer because they're newer and better.

    Looks amazing. That PC would of costed you another $100-$250 ( €88+? ) if it was pre-built and those parts will last you way longer in terms of future gaming. If possible upgrade your watts to 650-700 to be safe.

    True that, but its also best to add an ssd for booting your windows, and maybe buy another ssd for booting games of off, makes things more faster.

    And, I agree with @Color

    @MrTomBlack Sorry mate I don't own steam. The parts are all from newegg. However, I think I will buy parts individually and one at a time because the shipping cost of newegg to England is ridiculous. It was a complete let down
