PC choices

Technical Support
Hi, recently I have decided to get a new gaming PC and was wondering if I could get some help in choice. I have selected 2 PCs I have found, one is the Digital Storm Marauder Gaming PC, and the other is a custom build, The "Build a Gaming PC for $750 - August 2012" from duncan33303. If someone could give me some advice on which to choose I have around an $800 budget but can go to $900 for better performance if needed. If you guys have a better build you can recommend please do.
The "Build a Gaming PC for $750 - August 2012" option is really good, however its not $750 via the Amazon links. Its $851.26 plus any applicable taxes.

You may wish to look elsewhere for the same parts, such as NCIX, Newegg, or Microcentre.

Overpriced..

If you're looking prebuilt, you can usually find an ibuypower that's decent.

Is this what you use?
This review likes the Marauder for gaming - sounds like a decent machine for that. There is little doubt that the handmade machine would outperform it though.

I was planning on using this for other things too. Could you recommend another build that would handle wow on medium settings except for s-detail in the 35-50 frame rate range while still being under $900?
If you're comfortable being just on the edge of $900, this would be a really good option:

The 1st ibuypower one I linked does have HDMI. If you check the images, you can see dual dvi, 1 vga, and 1 hdmi connection.

It has HDMI. Almost all video cards now have HDMI built directly into the card. If it doesn't you can use a DVI-HDMI adapter.
Ressie I was wondering do you have experience with this PC?

Sorry.. No, I don't. However ibuypower can have decent systems for decent prices.
