If the "gam" at the end of the title was actually "gaming" but cut off, the obvious choice is the first one. The on-die Intel GPU in the 2nd option sucks for gaming, while the first one at least has a dedicated graphics card. It's not exactly a "gamer" GPU, though. But it's definitely better than the Intel option.
