(yes i know building a pc is a lot cheaper and could get much better parts but this is for a friend who doesnt have any experience in that)

so basically which pc is better? thanks

Other answer:

Pat:
#1: FX-4300 processor that can barely even handle CS:GO in 1080p, RX 460 2GB that can maybe get 30 FPS in AAA games (if you have an i5 or i7, actual performance with the FX will be worse).

#2: FX-6300 that is barely even better (and is still under the minimum requirements for a lot of newer games), R7 250 that isn't even intended for gaming in the first place.

I honestly can't recommend either of those for gaming. The first one has a half-decent GPU that will be bottlenecked by the terrible CPU. The second one has a terrible CPU and a terrible GPU. A custom built one will be infinitely better and is the only PC I can recommend in that price range. Something like this could at least do 1080p 60 FPS on medium settings on any current game: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/RvMxRG

You say it has to be prebuilt because it's for a friend. Why not just build it for him?

Gigabyte:
those are terrible computers for gaming.
You need a SSD for the OS and a 1TB at least for games and stuff. then if ya wanna cheap out and get an AMD it better have 8 cores @3.0GHz or more. and 16 GB of ram is needed. as for a gpu get a 10 series from nvidia like a 1050 it or 1060 6gb will be fine
Adrian:
Coin toss… first one has a lousy CPU but better video card. Second one has a better cpu, but poor video card.
So, strictly for gaming, the better video card would perform best for most games, except maybe highest end games. That said, neither system is a high end gaming machine….
What is unknown, is what the power supply size is inside each machine. That may determine any future upgrade possibilities.
