PC buying advice

I'm looking to buy a PC for home working and playing some games. The games are likely to be the likes of SimCity and Civ types as I have a PS3 for most other types. I've seen the 2 systems below and both come in at about £750 which is the top of my budget. What are your views. Any help appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Just not bought one yet. Ended up away quite a bit at the end of Aug - Sept so not had chance. Looking properly now though.
