"I want to purchase IBM 8700 25u from makeet..."

It appears you're asking about a Lenovo ThinkCentre A60? The 8700-25U uses an AMD CPU not Intel, therefore a Core 2 Duo is NOT supported.

The one in the above link has an older socket AM2 board, single core CPU, only 512MB RAM & weak GeForce 6100 integrated graphics. It's about 3 yrs behind the cutting edge of technology. If decent gaming is what you're after, you'd have to upgrade the CPU, add more RAM, a discrete video card & probably upgrade the power supply. The upgrades alone would cost close to $300 US.

"And if one system has dual core 2.2Ghz X2 + DDR1 + 256MB VGA"

If it uses DDR1 RAM, it's even older than the above system.

"one has single simple processor of 3.5 GHz + DDR2 + 128 MB VGA...."

3.5GHz? That speed doesn't ring a bell. 3.40Ghz & 3.6GHz, but not 3.5GHz.

And when you state VGA, does that mean onboard video (aka integrated graphics) or an actual video card (aka discrete graphics)? The difference between integrated & discrete is HUGE. For the most part, integrated graphics suck.

I think you need to get more detailed info about those systems or you *may* end up with an outdated, poor performing piece of crap.

Thanks dear!

So nice of U!
U don't know how much u guide me! Possibly i was ready to go bad shop keeper.

But one thing more that i want to ask is which brand: Hp, Del, IBM, ....or any that is not listed there ....is perfect....can u rank them.....
And you guide me that 6100 graphics card is weak .... i know that this is old but should the default configuration of this IBM 8700 support Windows Vista and the graphics of game like for example the heavy one: Need for speed Undercover. Because last time i sold my old Del GX 240 system in market because it could not meet the requirements of this game. And become blank screen.

And at the end..... Thanks a lot my friend!
