The first one is a Quad core with a better graphics card.

The second one is a core2duo with, in my opinion a lower spec graphics card!

If you use are not a gamer or use graphic intensive programmes then i would go for the core2duo!

I would go for the quad core. It is a much better future proof processor in a bigger case with larger psu.

Thanks for helping me decide. I have splashed out the extra £100 and gone for the quad core.

I think the quad core is much faster, have built one of each recently and the new quad's are very fast.
