This is the most expensive CPU listed at $699.99, the details are Systemax SG 1350 Gaming Desktop computer-Intel Core 2 Duo E4700 genuine Windows Vista(R) Home Premium SPI, Asus PSGC-MX, 2GB, 320GB, DRDRW, 8600GT, Flash Card Reader (9 in 1), 10/100 LAN 500Watts. It has a processor speed of 2.60GHz and a total memory of 2.0GB. It has a 12 month warranty with an additional service plan that is over $100.00 a year. You still need to purchase a keyboard, mouse and possibly a monitor though this tower will hook-up to a TV. I would recommend this computer to someone that is independently wealthy or had a job, or a company that was involved in gaming technology. It would be hard to justify the expense of this computer for only leisure time use at home.


This is the least expensive computer at $199.99 and though you need to purchase a monitor to go with it, at $500.00 less than the Systemax SG 1350 Gaming Desktop computer it is a real bargin. It is listed as an eMachine W3644 Refurbished AMD Desktop Computer-AMD Sempron LE-1200 2.1GHz, 1GB DDR2, 160GB SATA II, DVDRW,NVIDIA GeForce 6100, WindowsXP home. It has a processor of 2.10GHz and a total memory of 1.0GB, though this is only half of the Gaming Computer capacity, it can be expanded to support 2.0GB memory, the same as the Gaming Computer. There is a three month limited warranty on parts and labour with an additional service plan available for about $24.00 a year. With the technology changing at such a rapid rate purchasing this computer for home use would be the most cost effective purchase.

Comparing these two computers reminds me of an old saying, “buy the smallest house in the best neighbourhood” because you will benefit from your neighbours increased property values without your having to make any extra household expenses (like taxes, heating/AC and electricity).
