Recently, I've been given a chance to buy a gaming desktop. Since I have never had one before, I don't know much about the specs of the desktops, aside from the cpu, gpu, how much ram its got, etc. I stumbled upon two desktops that are very closely priced within budget. Each have their pros and cons, making it a dilemma for me. The desktop's main use is gaming. But I will browse the web with it and multitask at least half the time.

The reason why I need advice is because the BB679i have a better gpu than the GUA2200B. However, GUA2200B have 16GB of memory compared to the 8GB memory have the BB679i have. Now, the question is, which starting desktop is better for a complete noob like me? I have no experience with building one and I don't want to risk it either. So building one is not one of the options. Please give me your options on which one is the better, assuming that I am not upgrading any of the parts. Or if there is a better one, please post the model, within the budget of $700. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Honestly, 16Gb of ram isn't required unless your doing more intense stuff.

The PC with 8 GB is a great value for the performance. I have a similar computer but it cost $100 more. Plus, it says that you can always expand it later to 16 GB if you really need to.
