Im purchasing a new computer (hopefully within the next few days) and really need help choosing between two. Im not very good with computers and need an opinion of which of these two systems is better. (note one of the packages has a monitor and other extras into its pricetag, therefore making it a little more than the other) Also this system will be used for light gaming for maybe the next 1 1/2 years (after which i am hoping to upgrade it a little bit)

Please tell me which one as well as the reason why.
