As the title states trying to figure out which rig I'm going to buy tomorrow. One has the dual cards and the other has the single.

Here are both of the rigs. Which would you guys/gals go for?

They are different machines so not sure I could recommend one over the other - especially when we don't know the brands and model numbers of some of the components - specifically the motherboards or PSUs. Interestingly, the dual-graphics card machine has the smaller PSU, thought 850W is still big. At least it states is it "80+ Efficient" while the 950W makes no such claim. And "80+ Efficient" is not the same thing as "80 PLUS Certified" which, IMO, every PSU should have.

Also, I don't see any specs on case cooling. That is critical, especially for gaming machines and even more so with dual cards.

Since both machines are being marketed as gaming machines, I will assuming gaming will be your primary use of this machine. But note for many users, the hassles (including cooling and power) with dual cards just does not yield enough gaming performance to make it worthwhile.

Plus with a single card, you have an upgrade path (you can add another card later).
