I'm looking to get a new computer. I only use it to browse the net and play guild wars now and then, I'm not a hardcore gamer. I've widdled it down to two systems.

First system

Second system

My situation is, I'm on dial up..I know..but it's all I can get. Now, I understand I will have to add a modem. How do I know what modem will work with these systems? I'd rather get the first system with the better processor it's a 50 dollars difference but is the first system really better then the second?

The first PC would be a better choice for a couple of other reasons than the better processor, the case is bigger and so will make it easier to upgrade than the other computer which is the SFF (small form factor) type, these predominantly have smaller, different shape and weaker PSUs (power supply units) and will only accommodate low profile video and other add on cards which restricts future upgrade options, the first PC also has wireless LAN as standard so when your budget will allow it you could purchase a wireless router to connect to the internet http://www.newegg.co...Item=33-124-190
