It seems too cheap. If it looks like too good of a deal, it might be a scam.

Actually the price isnt too low because xeon is a server CPU as far as I know. Xeon = Core 2 (Maybe Im wrong) and the graphics card isnt that good. And I think the scam here is the twin CPU. Cause actually its just a dual core processor. Honestly its nowhere near a gaming pc. Dunno about the scamming part. Also the second one seems legit. But for gaming they both suck.

They aren't even worth it. If you're looking for a gaming rig, you're best off piecing something together.

You can build a Good Gaming Machine for 500.

Or This Dell is pretty good specs and price, and its a good trusted brand.

Graphics card will run most stuff (but not on Ultra Obv.)
