The first one, it has a better graphics card, which would let you run GW2 better. You wouldn't really need 8 cores outside of video editing, or stuff of that sort.

If you took the time to learn (take one day and just watch tutorials, just one day) you could get a computer literally twice as nice for the same price point. There are many, many in depth tutorials on youtube.

Neither. Both are using a Bulldozer CPU and fairly mediocre GPUs.

sonicers build is okay, but it doesn't account for OS and peripherals.
