Hey everyone, I want a base unit for playing high end games, something that can handle say Shogun 2 Total War with no problems. But I have gotten so so confused with the best to have! My spend range is like £600-£900. I found the following:

But let me know if they are bad, or what your thoughts are. As I said it will be mostly for gaming :P and in advance, any help would be GREATLY appreciated!! Thanks :D Dan

As specified in the links, only the first PC is suited gaming. That's because it has a reasonably good graphics card installed (ie The HD 6870), which is essential for gaming. The second PC has a cheapo discrete graphics card, which isn't much use for recent games, and the third PC only comes with integrated graphics (forget it!).

Summary:- The Medion is the only one that's any use to you (without customising the PC).
