A while ago I posted a thread about computers and much thanks to those that responded - They steered me clear of purchasing something way more powerful (and expensive) than I needed. I bought a used PC and a used interface in the meantime to get my hands dirty with a little home recording, and now I want to get a new machine that will be able to do two things for me: Home recording and ... gaming. I've narrowed the choices down to two products available at my local Future Shop. I was hoping some folks could A/B them for pros and cons. http://www.futureshop.ca/catalog/proddetail.asp?logon=&langid=EN&sku_id=0665000FS10128419&catid= http://www.futureshop.ca/catalog/proddetail.asp?logon=&langid=EN&sku_id=0665000FS10125151&catid= Which of these would be more multimedia friendly? I don't know enough about graphics cards to know which one is better. Are the processors comparable? The RAM is the same. HDD could be upgraded later on the 750GB machine later, if needed, so that's not a major concern for me. In a nutshell - which would be better for home recording and gaming (multimedia)?
