Best Gaming Computer deal for $500 budget

Hi, i am currently looking into purchasing a brand new desktop computer and have a $500, at most, budget. I want a computer that I can use for both gaming and 3D design programs found on the DAZ 3D website. Not too concerned with the 3D programs, as much as the gaming though haha. The kind of games i want to run at a preferably medium detail level would be games such as Counter strike: Global offensive, Skyrim, Battlefield 3, etc (more of the modern day releases)

I understand that some of these would be a stretch but i have to ask.

If it helps any, I found these two on my own that seem legit:

Open to many suggestions, except building a desktop from scratch, mostly looking for out of the box and done machines.

any help is appreciated. :D

  2. Even if the settings were put to low?
