Trouble deciding on a PC

Hey guys, I'm in the market for a new PC. After using this horribly outdated Acer M1100 for years and realizing it cannot run any game worth a damn, I decided it was time to lay down some money and get an upgrade. The problem is, there are so many GPU's, processors and ram types out there that my head is exploding. After browsing sites like NCIX and NewEgg, I've come down to four potential options that fit my budget, they are as follows:

http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1688...
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1688... (due to price, I imagine this one is better, but by how much?)

My main purpose as mentioned above, is for gaming. In regards to the games I want to play, stuff like Battlefield 3, Diablo III, League of Legends, stuff like that. And in regards to the performance, I have no interest in playing games on Ultra or high settings. If I can get consistent, say, 60 FPS on Medium that would be great. If I have to go down to low settings to get that, so be it. It's not a big deal to me. I'm just looking for something in the $500-700 range, that can run games even on low settings, smoothly. :) 

So my question, of those four options(or maybe a new option if you just happen to stumble upon one in the same price range) Which is the best bang for my buck that will get the job done?

Thanks a lot for your help! I know it's not easy reading all that. I appreciate it so much :hello:

None of those are even vaugely good gaming machines. You will want at least a hd 7750 graphics card to play games.

The 1st 2 and last one are the only 3 that have a graphics card that can be considered a gaming card (Radeon 6670) but it is the worst card considered a gaming card. The last one has a better CPU but due to the week GPU it will not benefit from it in gaming.
This is better http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1688... but still not close to what you can get if you build it see http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/pc-gaming-overclock...

Agreed on both fronts.

You could build a massively better machine yourself.

So none of them would even be able to run BF3 on low with stable frames in the 60s?
