What is criteria for buying domain for SEO?

So I found 2 domains that I would like to build my site on because of the names. One is very old (1999) and one is younger but slightly aged (2016). Does it make any difference in ranking if I use the oldest one? I intend to make quality content and depend on content to rank but I am up against some Wikipedia. I have beaten Wikipedia in the past but my domain ranked for stuff Wikipedia didn’t compete with so It became strong enough to past it. The site I want to build is going to be head-on fighting with Wikipedia for a lot of terms so any little boost will help. I am not trying to a black hat with backlinks, I just like the names and want to know what you guys think.
