PC recently died, and im trying to upgrade, I want to stay under $400, but get something that I can upgrade with just a stronger graphic card, or more ram simple things like that in the future. I mainly play RTS games, and my old pc which was fairly bad, could pretty much run the games I wanted to play just fine like starcraft 2, age of empires, C&C, and I could even pull off games like DMC, and GTA 4 not on anything high, but well enough to play with no major issues. I mention my old pc because i personally felt the specs were crap worthy, so im assuming the following choices should easily be able to out perform it. my old pc was a:

AMD phenom x4 9500 2.2ghz
8gb ram ddr2
750gb hdd
400w psu
HIS HD 4850 IceQ 4 1GB(256bit) GDDR3

would any of these be a massive leap? also would my graphics card the iceq4 be better than the card thats in any of these?

of course the cheaper the better, and im not going to build anything so this is all im going to get. if you see or know of anything better please feel free to let me know. thanks for any help guys.

First computer has no GPU and will be worse. With a $160-$100 GPU it will be a decent system.

Second computer has an APU which is not very good. It will be comparable to your current computer. WIll play modern games at lowest settings at 1080p.

Third computer same as second.

Fourth computer also the same deal and 2 and 3.

DO NOT buy any of these.

If I placed my graphic card the iceq 4 in them would it make it any better, or are they going to be worse than my old pc either way?

No, the GPU is the most important part so you would really still be stuck with the same performance you have now if you put your GPU in them.
