2 GB DDR2 RAM
500 GB HDD
Nvidia Quadro FX (don't know which one specifically)

Computer #2:
2.8 GHz Dual core processor
2 GB DDR2 RAM
250GB HDD
Nvidia Geforce 8800

the second by far.

Most (new) games are designed to utilize two or more cores. Also, Quadros are not built for gaming but things like CAD work. I can pretty much guarantee you that the 8800 in the second machine will scream past the Quadro in games.
