mac vs pc... personal preference really..

1st will be more powerful, and PC is better for games than a mac.

What exactly do you intend to do with your computer? Games, Adobe CS, just looking at naked people online?

You can build a new PC according to the guide on tonymacx86 and then run Mac on top of it. However, that mean you most likely have to switch the board to a Gigabyte.

The first is going to be a lot faster in general it has a lot more computing power but imac's are kind of a niche market, you don't use them for gaming so will you actually be using it?

Despite the fact that i now own an imac i would say if all your using it for is gaming and photoshop get the first one. It is a much better use of your money.
