First system has slower CPU, bit less memory, slightly better video card, HDD makes no difference, SSD is plus.
Considering on first system you get also monitor and other peripherals, first system sounds better deal for me.

GTAV is a very CPU and VRAM hungry game.
The 1st one has a GPU that could pull it off, but the dual core CPU would limit it constantly.
The 2nd one has quad core 8 thread CPU that could handle it, and games to come, easily, but the GPU would make you have to scale back the settings to Xbone-esque graphic fidelity (GPU in it is, performance wise, an Xbone).
The 2nd one would be my choice. Only because it's supper easy to upgrade the GPU later down the line (mass compatibility, easily swap-able), but upgrading CPUs can be a tricky business. There are games now that won't even boot if they detect you're using a dual core (like the core i3 in the first one).
For an extra 50$ on top the 2nd one you could drop by a thrift shop for a cheap screen (or use your TV), optical/laser mouse, and keyboard. If doing that isn't an option, I'd opt for the first just for the ease of everything already being together.
99% of the time, I edit for type-o's and grammar. I'll note it if that's not the case.
I write near essays for most my responses, and then try to condense as best I can to the introduction of one. Less is more. Let me know if I post to much.
I do a lot of spacing for readability. Let me know if that makes my posts seem to big.
