1. Not enough info on the graphics card to tell if it's good or not.
2. Terrible all around and not upgradeable at this point.
3. Too old. It will be too expensive to upgrade.
4. Too old, not good for upgrading
5. CPU is a little old but still the best out of all the PCs you listed. The other specs look decent enough but you will need a new graphics card.

So yeah I'd say get number 5 and upgrade the graphics card and you should be good to go.
