    Looks to me the first one is better. The i7 is a first generation part, for one thing. The i5 has a faster part (3.4Ghz) even at the same generation, more so if it is a newer part. Looks like the top one is a 2013 model. The i7 model is from 2009. I would say there is no competition- the i5 iMac is a better machine.

    The first being a late 2013 model will have distinct advantages over the 2009 model of course.

    The most important thing is that the 775 is an nVidia card with CUDA support.
    and the 4850 is an ATI card.

    Blender likes CUDA. It does not play well with ATI or AMD cards.

    Obviously, the 775 is, even outside of CUDA, substantially more powerful than the 4850.

    Finally, look at blenchmark: http://blenchmark.com/cpu-benchmarks

    (lower is better)

    imac late 2009 has an i7 860, which scores 297 seconds
    imac late 2013 has an i5 4670, which scores 243 seconds

    quicksync, a feature of 2nd generation and newer intel cpus is also useful.
