    Hi I'm looking at buy a second hand gaming computer. I'm not that knowledgeable about hardware and I was hoping someone could quickly compare these two i'm looking at.

    I realize the first one has less info but i think it has enough.

    1st: $1500
    Asus p8z68 deluxe mother board, Intel core i7 3.4 Ghz, 8mb cache, 2 x 8gb G.SkillDDR3-2133 RAM, GeForce GTX590 1280mb graphics, cool master cpu cooler, wirless gaming mouse, backlit keyboard and BENQ 23" 2ms response monitor

    2nd: $1800
    Graphics card - GTX 690, CPU - Intel Core i7 3770 LGA1155 CPU 3.4Ghz 8Mb Cache Ivy Bridge Boost 3.9Ghz, CPU Cooler - Noctua NH-C14 CPU Cooler, Motherboard - Asrock Z77-EXTREME4, Memory - Kingston 16GB(4X4G) KIT HyperX 2133MHz DDR3 XMP, PSU - OCZ ZX 1250W 80+ Gold, CD Drive - Samsung 22X DVDRW Black SATA, Primary Hard Drive - Kingston 120G HyperX 3k SSD SATA 3, Secondary Hard Drive - Kingston 120G HyperX 3k SSD SATA , Wifi Card - TP-LINK TL-WDN4800 - 450Mbps Wireless N Dual Band PCI Express Adapter, Fans - BitFenix Spectre PRO Series 120mm Fan x4, BitFenix Spectre PRO Series 140mm Fan x4

    I'm pretty sure the first is better value somce it comes with a monitor too...

    Bu I basically just want to know if the second one will perform much better, since it's more expensive, and seems to have a better video card.
