The first one would be better, considering that the second one has integrated video, which is usually crap when it comes to gaming.

Some points to consider:

While 1GB of RAM is adequate, consider upgrading to 2GB (or even higher, if you have a 64bit OS installed).

Also try finding a PC with some form of XP installed, or just downgrade later. XP gives a greater performance boost than Vista, and will save you a lot of headaches down the road.

If you can build one yourself you will probably get more bang for the buck

would down grading vista to xp be easy?

And I would consider that Lucky, but wouldn't that cost more money? And i dont know a thing aboutbuilding computers and what all I would need to do so.

Downgrading to XP is pretty easy. It's just best to have a spare PC around somewhere so you can download the drivers if you need them.

if you catch the sales or rebates you normally can build something equivalent or better for the same price.
