What Formula should I use?

Hello guys,

I am working on a rpg like map. Now, I am trying to balance the XP needed to level. The forumla is: Experience required = "Previous value" * "Previous value factor" + "Level" * "Level factor" + "Constant factor" and I got 2 different calculations.

First one:

Code:
Hero XP Required, Constant factor: 0
Hero XP Required, Level factor: 50
Hero XP Required, Previous value factor: 2
Hero XP Required, Table: 50

Level 1: 50
Level 2: 200 (50*2+2*50+0)
Level 3: 550 (200*2+3*50+0)
Level 4: 1300 (550*2+4*50+0)
...
As you can see, at level 4 you require 1300 Experience to level up.
Hf grinding.

Second one:

Code:
Hero XP Required, Constant factor: 50
Hero XP Required, Level factor: 50
Hero XP Required, Previous value factor: 1
Hero XP Required, Table: 50

Level 1: 50
Level 2: 200 (50*1+2*50+50)
Level 3: 400 (200*1+3*50+50)
Level 4: 650 (400*1+4*50+50)
Level 5: 950 (650*1+5*50+50)
I would like to use this, if you got better ones, feel free to post :D

I vote for the second one, if you like progression like I do but keeping the limit just a tad more each level.

I... currently have no idea how you used the previous * current xp to make the system or I would suggest some ideas.
