Hi Graham31,

 

The two alternative product purchases are very similar.

 

What do you want to do with your new PC?

Neither PC will shine at high end gaming. But the 690 (Nvidia 1050 TI) will game better than the 795 (Intel graphics).

 

Both systems have:

 

Similar processor,

Same Intel chipset,

Same memory specs,

Both PCs have an internal 310 PSU. 

One difference is the 795 has integrated Intel graphics. The 690 has a Nvidia 1050 Ti graphics card.

 

The storage configuration is also different:

The 795 has a 128 GB NVME drive and a 1 TB HDD.

The 690 appears to have a 16 GB cache drive and a 2 TB HDD.

 

Many folks have problems with the 128 GB SSD (this is the operating system and boot drive) and a larger platter HDD. The small SSD will fill up fast if you install many large programs and store data on this drive.

 

A very small 16 GB cache drive has limitations.

 

The best storage config IMHO is a fast 512 GB, or 1 TB, or greater NVME SSD.

 

Regards
