What does "in general" mean? What are you actually doing with your computer?

As far as those systems go, they both have processors that are overkill for most computing (including gaming), and video cards that are not up to the task of gaming, except for really low end stuff.

Yup, both are pretty hopeless as far as gaming goes. I also wouldn't buy anything with a 5400RPM drive as my main drive.

Neither. They both suck (I'm guessing Dell?)

Just build your own. For the cost of that first Dell you can build a pretty damn good PC.

Here's a nice gaming build for $665, not including OS. You can spend more or less on the video card, depending on how much gaming you want to do. With the SSD, it will feel much snappier than the pre-built machines.
