I think the second computer is overall better, the first has only 256 mb RAM, which is not good, the norm is 512 nowadays. However, the second comes without any OS installed on it, a bit of a problem, as windows is expensive (assuming you want that, linux is free and apparently better, ive never used it)
AS to whether they'll play battlefield 2, I've no idea whatsoever, look at the specs on the game packet/site and check those with the specs for those computers. i would imagine they'd work, as most games work even on my 3 year old desktop, try checking a gaming forum www.rgforums.com
soz if thats no help

Yeah I agree with the second system being the best overall for the game. I'm not too sure, but if you swapped the 512mb of RAM on the second system to the first one, and vice versa, the first one would probably have an advantage in the game then (AMD is overall better for games),

though of course, what video cards have you got? With rubbish video cards on both machines, just having more RAM and a better CPU isn't going to help you It needs a rather fast one to get high detail settings, and smooth rates.
