the £1,000 one, looks like a decent computer and should play the latest games, all though memory is abit skimpy on graphics card. is it safe to go for it?

Are there any games that can use 4 cores ? or 2 even , the extra memory in the AMD machine and the extra drive space together with the added 2 inches on the monitor and bearing in mind they both use the same graphics card make the first PC look excellent value , and the two hundred quid you save can be used for something else ( maybe flog the graphics card it comes with and buy a better one ! )

With Ashrich....The first deal is better, you can upgrade to the GTS card if you want to, and the extra ram and better screen offer good value!
