Default Is this a decent/upgradable gaming computer?

So I have decided to switch from xbox back to pc. The only problem is, I am on a budget of around 500 bucks (dont need OS, monitor, speakers, keyboard, mouse, or optical drive. Now I know 500 bucks isn't a great budget, but thats what I have to work with. I want something that will play modern games on at least medium settings. I also want the computer to be upgradable, as I will have more money to spend on the pc in a few months.

these are the 2 setups that I've noticed..

Any suggestions/comments will be greatly appreciated
