I've narrowed it down to a choice of two - either this or this.
Both are pretty similar to the one I have, RAM wise and HDD wise. The big difference is the processor - the first uses an i7, whereas the second uses an i5 (and currently, I have an i3). Both run Windows 7 Pro (64 bit), which I'm happy with.
Which would you recommend? Personally, I'd prefer the i7, obviously; however, is it worth spending an extra $200 for?
Thanks for your help...!

I'm not sure what AAA games are - do you mean something like the Elder Scrolls games and such? If so, then yes - I have both Oblivion and Skyrim, and I am considering Elder Scrolls Online. I'm also considering Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor - I've had my eye on it for quite some time.
The main reason that I'm looking to upgrade my computer is because, for the past few weeks, I've been having a big problem: it would boot normally, but a few minutes after I logged in, it would suddenly suffer a BSOD and I had to do a hard reboot. After I did that and started again, there were no problems, so I wasn't too worried about it. But then it was happening every time I started my computer - first I'd get a BSOD, and after a hard reboot, it worked fine.
I find it hard to understand why I got a BSOD, but I believe it has something to do with my display drivers because the BSOD error message told me that my display adapter (AMD Radeon HD 5670) was at fault. I tried to update my display drivers, but Device Manager told me that my drivers were up to date. Maybe I should try to roll them back, then? Any ideas?
