Opinion on 2 gaming systems

I was wondering which of these would be the better choice. I'm relatively new in gaming rigs, and am looking for a second opinion. Building the one from Newegg is not a problem, as I've built a rig before, (though the CyberPower system would be preferred, being pre-built), but is there any better options for about the same price? It will be used for mid-upper range gaming (Battlefield 4 eventually, Bioshock Inf, modded Skyrim, Total War: Rome 2, Tomb Raider, etc...)

I would like it to be comparable to my current build, as this will be a gift for a friend:
ASRock 970 Extreme4 Mo/Bo
Sapphire Radeon HD 7870 2GB GDDR5 GPU
AMD FX-6300 Vishera 6-core 3.5GHz CPU
G.Skill DDR3 8GB (2x4GB) RAM
Indifferent about the case/CD drive/HDD (as long as it's 1TB)

The newegg build will be $100 due to needing Windows 8
A monitor, keyboard, and mouse is already owned. The top range of the budget for the rest is $800
Thanks in advance for your help.

2nd one..
the 1st build might give u slightly better single thread performance(minor) but overall the 2nd build (newegg).. is far better..!
go for the second build..
secong build will also give you the pleasure of overclocking :p 
plus it has a better GPU ;)

Thanks for the quick replies! I was leaning towards the Newegg build as well. What about....

Again, my range was around $800, and with an OS being $100, the second one is stretching the budget. Is it worth it? I was only looking at the second one because it has the same motherboard as mine, so I know it works well, and have absolutely no expertise on hardware, so can't say for sure whether the Gigabyte MO/BO is good enough.
