Default Which pc should i get

Ok so i am looking into buying a new pc and i have found two on ebay that are the same price and are within my price range. I dont have a huge knowledge on computers (which is why i am posting on this forum) but could anyone tell me which would be the more powerful computer.

link 1 AMD Quad 4-Core FX 4100 3.6GHz Desktop Computer 8GB 1TB HDMI Gaming PC | eBay

link 2 Intel Core i5 3450 3.1GHz DESKTOP COMPUTER 8GB 1TB HDMI Quad Gaming PC | eBay

My main reason for buying a new PC is so i can run more strenuous games (my current laptop isnt the best at that) so thats pretty much the criteria.

thanks!

The latter, better CPU; but no description on the OS?

You have to purchase the OS separately or provide it yourself.

Ahh I see, that would explain the pricing.

It does say something about purchasing an OS from the seller.

I just got home and re-read the pages. I asked because the lower portions of the pages, for some reason, did not load up properly at work. I did not see the OS-related information.

Anyway, opinion remains the same. Choose the i5, especially since it is for gaming.
