I am a retired Ford tech. Next to Fords, any computer is a piece of cake. (The cake, its not a lie)
3770K @4.5, Corsair H100, GTX780, 16gig Samsung, Obsidian 700 (yes there is a 700)

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life. You never know when one will leave you.

haha, no dont worry you cant offend me when it comes to my computer or the knowledge that i have with them, im not in denial or anything.
No offense meant, but anything built today will be a vast improvement over a 14 year old computer.
If you buy a computer with onboard video and it doesn't have an extra expansion slot, that means you're stuck with that configuration. If you get one with a video card and after a while you decide you want to improve your graphics for a newer game, you can do so
Hp has a better track record than eMachines.
I you keep your eyes open, you might run across a sale where you can get a new, not refurbished, with a i year garantee

FWIW: I think the Inspiron 530 is a much better buy than the two you seem to have earmarked.
No monitor with either of your choices...LCD included in price of Inspiron 530.

Also, with the Dell running Vista, I would load up with the maximum memory the computer will take (4GB).
I would purchase the additional RAM from somewhere else, besides Dell.
You'll be able to find it cheaper from some place like, NewEgg.
Stick with one of these manufacturers:
