Personal preference would be the Dual core athlon. looks a decent system for the money. Personally I would consider a single core nowadays (although someone will no doubt prove me wrong!). I haven't used either company however so I can't comment on them directly.

I bought a Cube247 pc in February and I'm really pleased with it. When I found out a new BIOS was released for my board I was worried about updating it myself after a past disaster. Rang Cube247 and they were really helpful. Sent me a cd in the post with instructions to ring them when I got it. They talked me through the update and it was very easy thanks to the nifty self-running program.

I recommend Cube247 for whichever pc you choose to go for!

Value for money is the zoostorm. Great customer support as well. Cube has also an excellent reputation but I have never used them.

Personally I'd go for the one with the best GPU and best value.
