Help me to decide between 2 PCs for gaming!


Apr 17, 2015
Hello folks, i have been looking for entry gaming PC for my younger brother so he could have his own. I have found 2 used PCs which are 2-3 years old but performance is not that bad for their age in my opinion. I need help from people with bigger knowledge and experence about gaming computers to choose which one will be better for gaming. Both pcs have the same price. So down below u can see spec. for both of them:

Graphics: EVGA GeForce GTX 660Ti 2gb
Processor: Intel Core i5-3570K, Quad core, 3.4ghz, 6mb
Ram: Corsair Vengeance DDR3, 1600mhz, 8gb (2x4gb)
PSU/Strøm: Cooler Master GX Lite 600W
Case: Fractal Design Arc Midi Tower (sort)
Mother board: MSI B75MA-P45
Cd-rom: Samsung DVD Writer, SH-224BB

Graphics: 2047MB NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680
Motherboard: ASUSTeK Computer INC. M4A89TD
RAM: 8,00GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 668MHz
CPU: AMD Phenom II X6 1090T Thuban 45nm Technology
HDD: 120gb ATA Device (SSD)
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit

So i really would like to know which one is the best for value? Which one is build better? Which one is better for performance? Which will last longer (age/quality/performance)?

Sorry for my english :)

The first one is the best in my opinion CPU is solid and can be overclocks as long as u have a good cooler.
660ti is a good card and can be upgraded if needed later.
I gather u are playing on 1080p ?
Upgrade wise add a ssd if it doesn't already have one will make it more reactive and lower your load times in games
Neither. I would run away from the AMD based build, and I would also run away from the Intel one.

AMD one: 5 year only CPU and will most likely bottle neck the 680.
Intel one: PSU makes me want to cry.

But overall, I would get the Intel one, put a 600B or something in it, and call it a day.

The CPU in the Intel one is actually quite powerful to this day even though that CPU is 3 years old
