Neither graphics card is really up to the job of running demanding games, although the 6670 is much better than the 5450. My own preference would be for Windows 7 and, as both have 8GB of ram, you will need the 64 bit version. 32 bit Windows cannot utilise more than around 3.2 GB.

I would suggest you go with the second PC with, if possible, a further graphics card upgrade.
