Which one would you choose for a desktop?

If you were to choose between below 2 computers, which one would you choose?

Acer Aspire>
CPU: i5-8400 (6 cores, 2.80 GHz)
Ram: 8 GB, DDR4 2666 MHz UDIMM
Hard Drive: 2TB HDD
Graphic: Intel UHD Graphics 630
Price: C$499

CPU: i5-3470 (4 cores, 3.20 GHz)
Ram: 8 GB, DDR3 SDRAM PC3-10600
Hard Drive: 500 GB HDD
Graphic: ??
Price: $231

I thought $270 difference would worth the investment for Acer but just wanted to have others' opinion. This computer is for moderate photo & graphic editing (Photoshop, Illustrator etc..), some small video clip editing, multi-window browser and MS docs etc. No gaming involved but looking for long-lasting computer. If it was you, what would you choose? (I don't mind spending a little more $. The durability and well-running is my concern. The reason for comparing these 2 specific computer is because someone strongly suggest that HP would be fine. I don't know how fine it will be though)

As you want to use your PC for just causual work then the second option is better.
