Default Low budget CPU?

I found 2 computers that are pretty cheap, and I want to buy one for my girlfriend. She doesn't care about computers, but needs something for business purposes. Anyway, which is a better low level processor, the AMD Athlon 64 X2 4000+ or the Pentium Dual Core E2140?

At stock the 4000+ is faster, however the e2140 OC's faster.. but prebuilts most likely don't allow OC'ing probably

Thanks, chances are it will stay OEM, so no overclocking. All that will be done to the computer is a new graphics card.
