Will new games run on this computer?

Hello. I'm new to forums so apologize me if I'm on incorrect section. Anyway, my friend is about to buy a gaming computer and he would like to know what I think about his computer, can it run all new games? I have several of options.

Here are the details:

Hard Drive: 1 TB
Video Card: nVidia GT420 1GT
price: 710€

Computer 2

Processor: AMD PHENOM II X4 965 125W BLACK EDITION 3,4 GHz
RAM: 4 Gb
Hard Drive: 1 TB
Video Card: CLUB 3D HD 6850 1GB
price: 819€

HP Pavilion G5410sc

Processor: Intel Core i3-2100,1 GHz

Computer No.3 is the best here .It may cost much more than the first or second rig.

How do you work that out, option 2 is far superior to the other ones.

My friend is slowly turning to computer No.3 because of its cheap price. Will it run games like GTA IV or Black Ops? What do you think of processor or video card, how long will they last before they need to be changed?

Computer No.2 is superior than the other two on that list. You won't get much change out of 1 and 3.

I agree, Number 2 is a superior computer and that would be my choice number one but my friend is buying, not me. It seems like my friend has cut his budget so he's gonna buy computer Number 3.

How well will Number 3 run new games?

Thanks for replies!

Computer 2) would be my choice I beleive.

Computer 3) is a 3.1Ghz processor not a 1Ghz as posted. Not a bad choice for games if Computer 2) is too expensive.
The RAM set up is one 2GB and one 4GB. Not exactly optimal in fact a bit bizarrre. Being an HP upgrades in hardware will be very limited or non existent.

pdf spec sheet on C-2.
HP Pavilion G5410sc Desktop PC (Data sheet/c02895623.pdf)

C-2 it is. Spend the extra money if possible.

Maybe continue looking as a possibility?

From that list, best for gaming is Computer 2. I don't know if it is premade or you will buy the components separately, but if it is premade, I'd suggest to buy the components and install them by yourself. It is much cheaper this way, you will maybe cu from 50 to 100€.
I'd suggest to also get a faster HDD (maybe around 10.000 RPM) for your operating system and keep the 1TB 7200 RPM one for data storage. Also, for a gaming PC, you will need a good case that can provide decent airflow.

Computer 3 wont be able to deliver much when it comes to gaming and especially games like GTA IV will chew it and throw.
