  1. What type of games? If modern AAA games then neither is going to game well. The first one doesn't have a dedicated gpu and the second has a very weak CPU and only 4gb RAM. If all you want to do is game then at that price a console will be better.

    Games such as assassins creed,league of legends and minecraft
  3. Thanks for the quick reply,but should I upgrade the second CPU? What do you suggest for the cpu?
  4. Best answer
    1. For these alternatives, I see a model listed for #1, but not for #2. Are they supposed to be alternate versions of the same model?

    2. Is there a budget limitation that you have, and/or a limitation on what is available for you locally?

    As far as the systems go, this is what I can see:
    -- #1 has the stronger CPU -- the Athlon II X2 B24 looks to be roughly comparable to the consumer Athlon II X2 250 (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_AMD_Athlon_X2_microprocessors#Business-class_.27B.27_series_2, http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/K10/AMD-Athlon%20II%20X2%20B24%20-%20ADXB24OCK23GQ.html), which puts it 3 tiers lower than the i3 model (http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/cpu-hierarchy,4312.html).
    -- #1 also has more RAM. However, unless it has a 64-bit version of Windows installed, the extra 4GB is useless (32-bit Windows can only "see" up to 4GB of RAM).
    -- #1 has a much bigger HDD. However, neither one is really what I would consider "adequate" anymore; usually you want at least 1TB, if not 2+TB, of HDD on a desktop, with or without at least a 120GB (if not 250/500GB) SSD.
    -- #2 has a discrete GPU. Not the best, mind you, as it's 15th-tier (http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/gpu-hierarchy,4388.html)...but the integrated graphics are the original "Ironlake" version of Intel HD Graphics, which puts them at around 33rd-tier.

    The problem is that neither system shows any of the following information:
    -- what kind of expansion slots are inside (PCI only? PCIe? what version of PCIe?) & how many
    -- what make/model & wattage of PSU is installed?
    -- can the motherboard take additional RAM (assuming a 64-bit version of Windows)?
    -- can a better CPU be installed down the road?
