Answer by Upward Bound Precalc Tutor
If the prices are comparable, the second one is definitely the best. I hate
to have to say this too because I’m typing this on a PC that has a processor similar to
the first. However, the intel i5’s according to all that I’ve read are more efficient and
better performers than the AMD Bulldozers, which is what your AMD 4170 chip is.

The first one should be substantially less expensive than the second. The first has a better
power supply, but the AMD is more power hungry and needs that power supply.

The second one is also upgradable to some truly phenomenal Intel chips if you are a gamer
and need the processing power or efficiency of one of the new Intel IVY bridge chips {the chip
you are getting with the second one is a Sandy Bridge 2nd generation core, IVY is third generation
but that is extremely new }

The Upgrade path for the AMD is limited to a power hungry AMD 8 core Bulldozer.

IF MONEY is an issue, the first one should be an excellent way to get going with a gaming computer
that is powerful enough. However the 2nd one is the better computer.

PS, I did not see the optical drive mentioned for the second one(dvd burner). Make sure it has one. The first one gave the name of the case and the second one did not. The second one surely has a case
but unless appearance is an issue few of us give a flying fat rats you know what about the case.
