Welcome to TechIMO!
Basically you will need a PCI-e X16 expansion slot, and a decent power supply
I'm not a gamer, but can't you play Farmville on a cell phone?
At any rate, you don't need much for Farmville
We need to know the specs on those computers, or we really can't make a recommendation.
Start with the HP, as E machines are pieces of ****
We need a budget, keeping in mind that you will probably need a power supply also.
Which brings me to power supply specs, from the label, especially the 12v amps, and number of rails

What browser are you using? do you have all your drivers up to date? do you have the latest version of flash installed? Generally speaking adding in a stand alone card does not aid web based gaming unless you are using a browser and running a game that supports hardware acceleration.
