Which computer should I purchase for gaming

by bobbylief / December 20, 2013 4:02 AM PST

There are two computers I could buy. One is the
HP ENVY Phoenix 810-150se Desktop PC
With a 3rd Generation Intel® Core™ i7-4820K processor
2GB Nvidia GeForce GTX 770 [DVI-I, DVI-D, HDMI, DP, DVI to VGA dongle] graphics card

While the other one is the
CORE i7 4770K 3.5GHz 8Gb RAM Nvidia GTX 770 2Gb Custom Gaming Desktop Computer
(found it on ebay)
Intel Core i7 4770K 3.5GHz Quad Core 8MB processor
EVGA nVidia GeForce GTX 770 2GB DDR DVI/HDMI PCI-Express Video Card graphics card

One I guess is off brand but has better CPU and GPU. I have no idea which one would be better for gaming. The links for both are below

Looks too similar to me.

Benchmarks should be nearly identical.
