The 2nd one has a dedicated card so it's probably better for gaming, those games aren't too demanding though to be honest i think both would be fine. Go with the i3 though.

Have you considered an amd apu? the a10 comes with a great igpu for the i think its a hd 7660d or something, it can play most games quite well it plays AC3 at low-medium at around 30fps i think

Yea i thought the i3 is better cause of the dedicated card but i have read that the 4000 does almost the same job on online games.

There is an hp with Aa6 4400 2,7ghz 4g ram AMD Radeon HD 7520G + 7670M u think that would have better effect on games?but anyway i thought a6s are ways lower than 3rd generation i3s

Oh, you're going to need something a little bit more powerful for gw2, unless you're comfortable playing on low settings. I also 2nd going for an amd a6 apu as it's gpu is more powerful. mmorpg's do need a decent gpu for them. At least I know gw2 does.

The model you listed with the a6 4400 is probably your best bet actually.
