    First post, sorry if this is in the wrong spot.

    I am looking at two PCs, both with very similar specs.

    However, one is from Dell with:

    PentiumĀ® D Processor 820 with Dual Core Technology (2.80GHz, 800FSB)
    256MB nVidia GeForce 7900 GS

    The other is from HP with:

    Intel(R) Core(TM) 2 Duo processor E6300 (1.86GHz)
    256MB NVIDIA GeForce 7500LE, TV-Out, DVI, VGA

    All other specs are very similar(1 GB RAM, 19" flat screen, apx $1200).

    Which PC is better for gaming?
    Which processor is better?

    the Core 2 Duo processor is better (Conroe core, currently the top of the line series)

    The 7900GS Graphics card is better, so I would assume the Dell would be the better Gamer in the current setup.

    The HP would be better if the graphics card was more comparable.

    Have to agree the Core 2 Duo from HP is a lot better but I think the GPU is actually a 7600LE (not 7500). DELL was selling PC's loaded with SPYWARE and for that I really don't like them:


    Why don't you talk to the salespeople and say look I really like this HP but I can get a DELL for the same price with a better Video Card, if you want my buisness are you willing to upgrade the Video Card. Sometimes this will work if you say it well.
