Hi, Which PC is better for extreme gaming? i have been looking for a computer with just the base unit (no monitor etc) on the internet for less than £600 for extreme gaming and i have found these two. Which one do you think would suit my needs best or do you know where i can get a better one without self building for about the same price. Bear in mind they will both have a 9800 all in wonder graphics card like the Tiny has. The links are:

Graphics Card is the most important part for game. So, it think you better to get a 9800 Pro or better.

although probably about twice the price of your budget, look at alienware

The Radeon 9800XT is about as good as it gets at the moment, but it is expensive. Would take half your budget on its own.

Alienware is supposed to be very good, however very expensive.

Go for the Mesh, (out of those 2) remember Tiny is supported by Time. You may get more for your money if your buy a pc without a graphics card, then add it in yourself afterwards. £150 or so for 9800pro. click here= £155

Also 256mb is not enough! Particularly for a gaming machine...

Personlly i build my own for gaming, that way i get whats impotant. If you cant build your own why not get a local shop to build one to your design. Belive me you get a far better offer and i have found them to be a great help when needed.

you will need at least 2.5 ghz processor, and 512 ram.

then get a Radeon 9800 Pro. that will let you play the lastest games.
