Can you please answer this question?

Hi guys, i wanted to get this laptop because my dad would not let me get a desktop. I was like ok and i found this laptop http://shop.lenovo.com/SEUILibrary/controller/e/we...

It is nice but i told him that i could get a better desktop for cheaper. My dad after a couple of weeks agreed and told me the only thing is i would have to get it for cheaper. I want to now if any of you can make a desktop like this laptop or better for me for cheaper. This is the first desktop i will ever have and i dont know were to find the parts or anything. If you can please make a desktop better than this one i will definately appreciate it. Just link me the parts individually or if you prefer in a website all together its fine. Or if you guys think i should just stick with the laptop, let me know.

Ps: I will be using this desktop or laptop for gaming, I will be playing crysis 3 farcry 3 battlefield 3 and 4 when it comes out, and some other pretty intense games. So please make sure it can run these on atleast high/med. Thanks in advance.

which one is better?

If you dont like any of those please leave suggestions or make it for me please as i am new to desktops have had laptops all my life

Thanks for the help

Update:

Forget about the second one about the first one do you guys think it will do the job? I will be using this for 4 more years before I will probably upgrade anything on it.So what do you guys say? I do want the SSD. And I really do like the AMD FX 8350 ad I can overclock It to easily 4.6-4.7. But what cooling do you guys recommend for over locking the FC 8350 for that high? Thanks again for the help

    If you really want your desktop to be significantly cheaper than the laptop, you should probably not get the SSD on the first one. The second one will NOT run the games you want to run on it, mainly due to the 610 graphics card.

    My personal setup - I sacrificed the processor a little bit for a more higher end Graphics Card, which is the most important thing when it comes to gaming.

    First desktop is better because the GT 610 is garbage. I would downgrade to AMD Phenom ii4 965 and get the AMD Radeon HD 7870 or GTX660. But if you don't upgrade the GPU the GTX650 ti boost can play League of Legends at max settings.

    Both ones listed are garbage for gaming. The first has a mediocre video card and the second has a terrible one.

    I highly suggest this one http://pcpartpicker.com/p/VL6t

    It does not come with an operating system or a monitor or inputs such as a mouse and keyboard. If you must include those in your build let me know.
