Both barely mediocre for playing games.

Cheap and gaming dont really go together that well. After all it's quite easy to spend $1000 on a video card........you need to state what type of 'gaming ' you want to do otherwise how the hell can anyone even guess what you'll need

Moderate gaming. Hmm.. Able to play latest games (games released this year) at low or medium settings would be fine.

Both are pretty reasonable for what you want to play games at average to low settings, how much money in your budget?

Probably around $500-700 for the system itself (without monitor or os would be fine)

Both PC's you linked have terrible Cpus. At least get phenom

If you want a decent gaming rig either spend the big bucks or buy an xbox.
