I have two pc options, either Intel® Core™ i3-540 Processor (4M Cache, 3.06 GHz) with 4GB RAM and a decent graphics card, OR Intel® Core™ i3-4150 Processor (3M Cache, 3.50 GHz) and 2GB RAM. fyi i3-540 is 2nd gen and i3-4150 is 4th gen. I would be using this pc for a bit video editing with Pinnacle and Picture editing with lightroom and photoshop. Would really appreciate you could say which one you would suggest and why.

Just be aware that one is Socket 1150 and the other Socket 1156 so make sure you get the correct motherboard - I assume that they will be different.
