It really depends alot on the brand, because you can get a cheap machine that has good specs... But it only lasts >1 year because of poor quality.
For the most part, you should be able to do most games on there... You can always get better, but you probably don't need to.

So reply with the brand and I'll give you more of my opinion.

Both have integrated graphics, so that will limit your gaming capabilities. Both only have one PCIe-16, so you can add one dedicated graphics card, but no SLI or Cross Fire. The first computer has more RAM and a faster CPU, that one looks better to me.

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