    Default Which rig?

    Sup all.

    I've got a choice between these two rigs. I'm a gamer, so both of these have what I need to last a few years on the edge.

    Question is though, which one is the fastest for gaming?

    For the sake of ease, I wont be changing the stats from each quote, so please judge purely off what is porvided here.

    Well between those 2 obviously the first one is more powerful... It has better processor (i7-2700k vs i5-2500k), and better vga (7970 vs CF 6870)... Although the second one have the edge with the hard-drives (Corsair Force > Patriot Wildfire) and any (well not any, but in most cases) 7200RPM > Barracuda Green (5900RPM)...

    I'd definitely say the first one. The SSD speeds won't matter that much in gaming or anything other than disk benchmarking. It'd be nice if you could get a bigger PSU in it, that way you could surely do Crossfire 7970's if you ever get the upgrade itch, but that's the only nitpick I'd have.

    That's just specs, though. I have no knowledge of either of those system builders as far as reputation goes.
