Between these 2 (links inside)

So I'm planning on buying one of these 2 pre-built pc's and eventually learning on how to upgrade.

So should I go with this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16883229285#scrollReviews

or should I spend some more and get this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=83-229-361&SortField=0&SummaryType=2&Pagesize=10&PurchaseMark=&SelectedRating=-1&VideoOnlyMark=False&VendorMark=&IsFeedbackTab=true&Page=2#scrollFullInfo

With little knowledge of computers that I have, I think I'm going to replace the video card eventually.
So the question is Which one should I buy for a starter Gaming Pc?

CNET bought a house!

Take a look inside the house where we will be testing connected locks, thermostats and other smart home products so we can tell a complete story.
