after having an All-In-One PC over the last 4 years I've decided it's time to move back to a full desktop, mainly because my beautiful touch screen on this machine came a victim of a temper tantrum I had after an argument with the missus.
I've been having a look at a barebones PC as I have a 2TB HDD sitting around and a graphics card could be sorted no worries.
I've seen 2 from a company called Novatech here in the UK and need help deciding between the two.
They both offer the same basic spec but with one difference, one has an AMD FX-8 chip and the other an Intel i7.
Now firstly... the spec of the overall machine. Is it GREAT, Good, Average or Poor?
Which chip do I go for, I have an Intel mac and my Acer PC is AMD so I'm not bothered either way, just which is better. Sure the AMD has a faster clock speed but does the turbo boost of the i7 smack the FX-8 in the face??
The AMD does also come with a 750w Crossair PSU whereas the Intel only has a 500w.
Well here they are..
