    Default Deciding between two HP Desktops ---- Help/Advice badly needed!

    hello everyone,
    i recently purchased a desktop from costco with the following specs:

    6GB ram
    2.5 ghz 8300 quad processor
    640GB HD
    integrated GC
    25" monitor
    price: 800

    i then bought a GEforce 9800GT EE GC and a 550 continous Power Supply totalling $180

    Total price with taxes= $1050

    The computer is still unopenned..and i'm wondering if i should return it and get the following:


    8GB Ram
    2.6 GHz quad processor
    750GB HD
    512MB NVIDIA G310 Graphics and the right power supply
    25" Monitor

    Price after tax: $1050


    Should i make the switch?
    Why/Why not?

    I'd stick with the first one. You won't see much benefit of 8gigs of RAM compared to 6gigs and the G310 graphics card is a pile of poo and not suited for gaming.
