How much are these computers costing? since they are older computers they should be cheap. Would you have any adversion to building your own?

Well free is a good price for both of these computers.

The searches I have found leads me to believe the Compaq has a 3500+ cpu, more ram and more hard drive space than the dell.

Go for the Compaq.
