Neither. Advice? Build your own PC. Easy, Fun, and Much Cheaper. (Wow, I feel like a salesperson now).

Of course I'm going to say build it. But if for some reason you decide not too, I'd get the second option and throw in another GB of RAM and you still probably would not exceed the price of the first one.
