Help me choose computer
 
As the title says, I'm having trouble to make my descision on wich one to get.

I'm gonna use my new PC for mainly gaming but also for music making (of course). Now these are the PC's.

Corsair HX 650W PSU, 80 PLUS® Gold
Intel® Core i5-3550 Processor
MSI Z77A-GD55, Socket-1155
Kingston ValueR. DDR3 1333MHz 8GB, CL9
2x Gainward GeForce GTX 660Ti 2GB PhysX

and the other one:

Silver Power SP-SS500 500W PSU
ASUS P8Z77-V LX, Socket-1155
Intel® Core i7-3770 Processor
Kingston DDR3 HyperX 1600MHz 16GB
Gainward GeForce GTX 670 2GB PhysX CUDA

I really like the 2x GPU's on the first one, but I've heard that one GTX 670 is more than enough for your gaming needs.

Worth mentioning is also that the 2x GPU PC is 100$ cheaper then the other one.

So tech heads...wich one do I choose?

I'd definitely go for second one!

Because of the i7 right? I think this has the most benefit for music making as well.

i7 no question

The i5 processor does its job well also though.

n0ahg 2012-08-24 23:48

But given the option you'd be silly to compromise by getting an i5 with only 8GB RAM vs i7 with 16GB RAM.

(Nothing wrong with an i5 but there is a choice here)

Thanks alot guys, I think I've made a decision :D

I've just had an i7 3770K PC built and there are a couple of threads about it in the User Forum.
The bottom line is that it is a beast of a machine (with a 670 graphics card so I can see my music ;) ). Anything less is less.

Grum.

Edit: The processor is running at 4.2 Ghz so it is a bigger beast than normal!

Haha allright brow. I'm just wondering, is a 500W power supply enough to run it all? Or do I need an upgrade?
