Buying a new Gaming PC. Don't want to spend too much!

Hi, so as title says I am upgrading my PC, which I've been needing to do for a while now as it's over 5 years old.

What I want from the new PC:
So it's going to be primarily used for gaming. Currently games I like are League of Legends, Civ V, GTA IV, Borderlands 2, Far Cry 2 (3 is unplayable on my current system)

I will want to be buying GTA V and other such games as they come out. I'm not a huge graphics whore, but I would like to be able to play new releases to a good fps on Medium Settings.

Maybe it's worth saying that the only thing worth keeping from my current PC is a 512mb GTS 450 that is around 6 months old

What I've found:
So here are 3 PCs that I like the look of. I don't want to spend too little and not be able to play some games because the quality isn't high enough. On the other hand, I'm 19 and a student so I don't want to be spending too much unless it is really worth it and will mean I won't have to upgrade for an extra 6 months or something like that.

So far as I'm aware my current GTS 450 is better than the one in the 2nd PC listed here, but otherwise I wouldn't want to be keeping it. What are your thoughts? I'm not gonna be wanting to play Crysis 3 on Ultra Settings or anything. As a PC gamer I've never had anything close to a high-end PC so my knowledge on stuff like this is pretty limited. Thanks for any advice, or any links to some better suited PCs if you have any.

P.S. While I would be confident on building my own PC as I have done so a couple of times in the past, I couldn't really find the parts for any cheaper than the full packages listed.
