I was wondering what computer system is better for the price.

I have recently built a new PC:
Intel Core2 Quad Processor Q9550 @3ghz
4Gb Crucial Memory @ 800MHz
Sapphire HD 4850 512MB
1TB Hard Drive
running vista 64bit

and he bought an imac:
2.66GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
4GB memory
640GB hard drive
NVIDIA GeForce 9400M

the mac cost about £200 more.

which would be a better computer?

of which machine is the better one - they are both good, but different. One is a PC, and one is a Mac - two different operating systems, two different computers, both well specified, and more than capable.

You haven't told us what the computers cost, but Macs have traditionally been more expensive than PCs.
