Which one is better in your opinion. This is my first bulid. I'm 15 trying to just trying to learn. I'm not a Intel Fan-Boy, quite frankly I think they overprice their stuff just a little, especially for those stable extreme-end Xeon's, and I really never like Intel (Sorry just my opinion). But, what do I know anyway I STILL GOT ALOT TO LEARN. So these are my part lists please help mE chose the right one.

I'll be using Windows 7 Pro and I need the computer for Photoshop AND Premier Pro. No Gaming. I'll put in a high-end graphics card in later for that.

Those are both unbalanced, but I would say the 2nd one is better for just general things like email and YouTube, etc.

What are the uses for the PC? What is your max budget?

Oh yeah saw you don't have a graphics card (gpu) on your list...you'll probably wanna get one of those. In your case anything below 7850 will bottleneck your system .

I'm not going to game (yet) on the system so I'm using integrated graphics or a low-end gpu and could you explain what you mean by "In your case anything below 7850 will bottleneck your system".

The uses are solely for Adobe software. The MAX budget was $750

No idea how important that Adobe software is, but you can use solely your RAM to run it, making it much better and faster. Also, faster RAM helps AMD.
