Go with #1

Even a gtx260 with a old school P4 will destroy option number two lol.

ok ill go with the gtx 260 but what is the difference between the two:

GeForce® GTX 260 Sonic 216 SP (896MB)

GeForce® GTX 260 Sonic 216 SP (1792MB)

how many more fps i cant get with the 1792MB?

That will depend on your resolution and AA settings.

Most likely though, you probably wont notice a difference.

If there a difference between the price, get whats ever cheaper of the 2. If not then i guess you can go after the 1.7 GB

Are those really your only two options? The first has a cheap dual core and 2 gigs of ram but a nice video card. The second has a much better CPU and a more reasonable amount of ram but a terrible card for gaming. Is there no choice between those extremes?
You would be best off getting a computer without a video card and buying it separately.
