This discussion thread has 7 messages.

ok im trying to decide between the to pcs. i need to know if the 50 xtra dollars is woth getting the HP-ENVY-h8-1400z. i also have a few questions about the Integrated Intel(R) HD Graphics [DVI-D & DVI-D, DX 10.1] on the HP-Pavilion-p7-1420t vs the
1GB AMD Radeon HD 7450 [DVI, HDMI, VGA adapter]on the HP-ENVY-h8-1400z. and the HP-ENVY-h8-1400z has 4 DIMM vs the 2 DMIMM ON THE HP-Pavilion-p7-1420t im not sure what DIMM means what does it do for your pc. also im guessing the AMD FX-6120 six-core processor [3.6GHz, 6MB L2/8MB L3 Cache]on the HP-ENVY-h8-1400z is better than the 3rd Generation Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-3330 quad-core processor [3.0GHz, 6MB Shared Cache] on the HP-Pavilion-p7-1420t?

I know for a fact that a lot of games won't play if you have intel graphics on them.I had to go out and buy a separate video card.

Those models are available in a load of different spec configurations, need more info to compare specific models.

Roughly speaking though, the AMD config is looking like a more worthwhile purchase at the starting price bracket.

i would be getting the basic package on both of them
In which case, yes, the ENVY looks better value for money. Quite evenly matched in terms of CPU, but the extra $50 is worth is for the dedicated graphics card and the more easily upgradeable RAM (which suggests a superior motherboard).

I would ask HP to sell you it with Windows 7 installed, though.

why with windows 7?
Because Windows 7 is still the best choice - Windows 8 will be entirely different from what you're used to, so I suggest that you do a little reading up and decide if it is for you beforehand.
