Are you willing to build yourself? those are both pretty crappy and you can do way better for the same money.

I could, but those 2 are stretching my budget and I am not sure what to put in a build.

I would still like to know which one is better for the money.

What is your budget? I will organize a build which is better than both of those for less money. If you want to upgrade the GPU in a prebuilt you have to drop $50 on a PSU as well so its not worth it.

I know someone is going to say that I can't get anything for this price, but my budget could stretch close to $600.

I forgot to mention that I would like to be able to play planetside 2 or team fortress 2 on low/ medium settings

for $600 you can play most games on high settings. I will put something together for you.
