Default Which computer is better for gaming?

I am wanting to play games like minecraft and just basically search the web and watch youtube with a computer. Which one would you recommend? My budget is right at where these two are priced. Are there any others you guys would recommend? Amazon.com: Gateway SX2380-UR308 Desktop (Black): Computers & Accessories
Or
FRYS.com*|*Hp
I don't really know that much about commuters either so any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks!

That's a very good deal for $316, All you need to get is GPU and maybe get a better CPU down the track..

yes sorry forgot about that, you would need to buy windows 7 if you "can get hold " of a copy. buy the oem version, its much cheaper and its the same thing.

how much you got to spend on a monitor?

yeah you could add a cheap gpu for now to give better gaming perfomance.

Check WalMart in the computer section. They have some killer prices on name brand monitors from time to time.
