I can instantlly dismiss the Core 2 Duo.

A second look.

I see GAMER TROUBLES in all those combos. NEXT TIME rather than just bits and pieces of the machine, share the maker and model. I see a few 3GB machines so my bet is that those are VALUE MACHINES for those that are clinging to 32-bit Windows. You'll miss out on what is the next great thing.

i5 gone...

The build is Dell, and it now looks like they have discontinued the i5 model mentioned above, in my country, India.

So, I think I can only go with i3 with my budget.
I'll look for more models.

In GPU, is it something like more the series, the better it is? Like, are all ATI 5000 series are better than 4000 series?

Also, what should one prefer, ATI or Nvidia GPU?

the choice is yours

in regards to ATI or NVidia, here is a link comparing the 2 newest cards:

Your choice also depends on what your budget is.

I agree with Bob

Take the one with the i5 CPU, and see if you match it up with (at least) a 5000 series videocard.

P.S. Form a gamer's POV; don't ever use integrated graphics for gaming, you'll never get any usable framerates with them
