Which computer has the best bang for your buck?

1) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N8...

2)http://www.bestbuy.com/site/iBUYPOWER+-+Desktop+-+...

I would assume that the most expensive one is the one with the best specs, but is there a noticable difference between the two if I were to play games like Skyrim at medium-high? Can the most expensive one (the Newegg link) run at High or maybe even ultra without lag? I doubt it won't lag on ultra, but the "iBUYPOWER Gamer Extreme NE625FX" can run Skyrim on high without lag, right? What's the most each of the two can run Skyrim at without dipping into the 20 FPS range??

    Yes there is a very noticable differance, and yes the one from newegg will be able to run much more games at high or max with decent framerate at 1920*1080.

    considering framerate in skyrim at 1920*1080 max settings with no addons id anticipate:

    newegg build:36-42 FPS

    best buy: 25-28 FPS (the bench I posted in source is medium settings 30 FPS, im being generous here)

    Conclusion: One of them is a much better PC for gaming (I dont think discrete cards like the one on the best buy build are very effective for gaming 90% of the time..) But is all depends on the $ you are ready to invest, as both those PC's can run the game you want and at satisfying levels.

    The 1st choice seems like the best, it even has a SSD which gives it an advantage over the 2nd choice. SSD are better than HDD. if you want the computer with the best bet for playing games the 1st choice has a higher chance of working than the 2nd.
