Advice for my 800 pounds please

Little bit of a noob on this but I am looking to go full on into pc gaming. I've never built a pc but would love to do it but I also have a deal on a used pre built machine that looks amazing from amazon. I've narrowed down my options to: https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/guide/vpYcCJ/modest-amd-gaming-build

 

https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/guide/GrBD4D/modest-intel-gaming-build

 

OR

This dell in "good condition" from amazon for 892 pounds 

 

Which do you think I should go for or would you recommend anything else? 

 

Thanks

thats a lot of money for a used dell with those specs. you can probably get a BETTER one to build for yourself for the same price range of that dell. with better specs. 

Rig 1: i7-9700k OC'd to 5.0ghz all core | EVGA XC RTX 2080Ti | ADATA DDR4 2400mhz 4x8gb | ASUS PRIME Z370-P | Asetek 550LC 120mm | ADATA 480GB SSD & Toshiba P300 3TB | Cooler Master Masterbox MB500 | Win 10 Home | Logitech G910 Orion Spectrum, G502 Proteus Spectrum, G933 Artemis Spectrum Snow Wireless Limited Edition, Corsair MM300 Mouse Pad | 2 MSI Optix Curved 27" FHD Monitors 

 

(before i sold the WD drive and MSI gpu - https://www.userbenchmark.com/UserRun/11946219 171 gaming. felt good.)

 

Rig 2: i7-7700k Stock clocks | MSI Armor GTX 1070 | ADATA DDR4 2400mhz 2x8GB | MSI Z270 A-Pro | WD Green 240GB SSD & 2TB Seagate HDD | Thermaltake Core G21 Tempered Glass Edition | Win 10 Home | 2 HP Omen FHD 144hz 24.5" Monitors

Rig 4: i7-4770 | EVGA SSC 1050ti | Some random DDR3 ram 2x2gb and 2x4gb sticks | OEM Dell Mobo | Stock Cooler | 1TB WD Black HDD | Win 7 Home

Id go with that AMD build but use the extra money in your budget for a better motherboard

if the dell is 900 its a good deal but if it is 1600 then it isnt

for 900 pounds its actually a steal tho so go with it if you can 

heres a quick list i made using cheap parts and its over 1000 pounds
