OK, comparing these 2 systems, which one would you choose? i am leaning against Inspiron 580s but $300 difference, is it worth it?

2GB (2X1GB) DDR2 800MHz SDRAM Memory
320GB SATA 3.0Gb/s Hard Drive with Native Command Queuing
ATI® Radeon™ HD MB DDR2

----------------------------vs----------------------------

Inspiron 580s (SGD999=USD720)

Intel® Core" i3-530 Processor (2.93GHz, 1333MHz FSB, 4MB Cache)

If you can swing it, I'd go for the most expensive one, just for longevity sake. Also, what are you going to be using the computer FOR?

I'm going to have to look around, but my computer was fifty dollars cheaper and beats the shit out of those two, even though it's an HP. Gimme a minute.

The second one. Bigger number = Better. Although if you're trying to keep up with current spec it'll be obsolete in 6 months anyway, which is why I never go for the newest (expensive) stuff.

I'm not sure about the 64bit OS though, you only really need it if you want more than 3GB of RAM. I've got XP64 and it seems less stable than the 32bit I used to have. Although it is better than when I first got it.

Old GNR is my favorite as well, what a sound.

CD is Okay, it's not Guns N Roses but it's a nice album, some brilliant lyrics.

As I said, within 6 months anything is old technology, there's no point trying to keep up to date unless you enjoy wasting money and/or are an uber fanboy. (Not that fanboy.)

One can't say DDR2 is old technology in the same relation as they can say a video card is old technology. DDR2 was around for a long time but now everything new is going to DDR3 (which will be around for several years)

I would always chose the most expensive I could afford, and that would be my advise.

But the most expensive is not always what's best for your usage.

there are systems that design for certain purposes like multimedia design.so not worth to spend too much money on that kinda stuffs when all i use for is play a few games and web browsing.also i found that it's a waste to spend money on large hard disk sizes.

Any way i bought the 2nd one in this case,simply for better processor and graphic card.i kinda start to dislike dell.it's been more than a week and i still have not got my pc.

It's so much high resolution video in modern games that I thought a gaming rig would need to be better than most other systems. Maybe short of professional video editing.

I wouldn't go that far. Games are meant to run well on people's computers. A more game-specific computer, but nothing extreme. And resolution is limited by your monitor. A smaller monitor doesn't need to process the picture as much. If you can afford a bigger monitor, you can probably afford a better computer to serve it.
