Help with Gaming Desktop?

I've been looking to make the jump to the pc world and I have no idea where to start. I know alienware is the best of the best but I'm on a budget. I would prefer a desktop that can run the newer games but I don't need to have 'ultra' graphics running. I understand a hard drive is important as well as a processor and graphics card. I attempted to see how to build one's own computer but It's way too complicated because like I said, I'm new to this. I've been looking into PCs and have several selected ones to pick off of, please tell me which one is the better of the rest.

1st http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N8...

2nd http://www.bestbuy.com/site/iBUYPOWER+-+Desktop+-+...

3rd https://www.google.com/shopping/product/6710168537...

Now I would prefer Windows 7 over 8 but if that's an issue, I can just settle with 8. I really don't want to go over $700 and I would like it if I could stay under $600. Where can I buy a desktop that can handle my needs at a reasonable price? I've also had my eye on www.digitalstormonline.com/

Anyways please help.

    Of those, the 2nd one (Ibuypower from Best Buy) is the pick.

    About 70% of your overall gaming performance is determined by your graphic card, and the Radeon HD 7770 is FAR superior to the Radeon HD 6670 and GeForce GT 640 (which are about a wash)
