Entry-level Budget Gaming PC

Can anybody give their opinions on my budget build?
I have 2 builds so you can help me by: choosing the better build, comment on a build, etc.
Also, I'm planning to build the computer itself first, then when I have enough money I will buy the GPU.
Remember: $1 = Php 43.00

BUILD #1
Intel Core i3-3210 Processor CPU Php 4900
MSI B75MA-P45 Motherboard Php 2900
CORSAIR XMS3 4GB 1333MHZ RAM Php 1700
HITACHI 500GB 7200RPM 3.5" SATA Hard Disk Drive Php 2300
GIGABYTE GZ-ZE2 Case Php 950
AEROCOOL VP PRO 500W Power Supply Php 1750
TOTAL
Php12,800.00

OS:
Windows 8 64-bit

Upgrades planned:
EVGA GTX560 Ti 1gb Graphics Card Php 6950
or
Radeon HD 7770 1gb Graphics Card Php 5300
Intel Core i5 Processor (3rd Generation)

BUILD #2

INTEL CORE I3-4130 Processor CPU Php 5900
ASROCK H81M-DGS Motherboard Php 2500
CORSAIR XMS3 4GB 1333MHZ RAM Php 1700
HITACHI 500GB 7200RPM 3.5" SATA Hard Disk Drive Php 2300
GIGABYTE GZ-ZE2 Case Php 950
AEROCOOL VP PRO 500W Power Supply Php 1750
TOTAL
P13,400.00 estimated

OS:
Windows 8 64-bit

Upgrades planned:
EVGA GTX560 Ti Graphics Card Php 6950
or
Radeon HD 7770 1gb Graphics Card Php 5300
Intel Core i5 (4th Generation)

Reasons for this build:
I got an i3-4130 and H81 Motherboard to future-proof myself, so I can just upgrade my processor to any 4th Generation Processor out there without buying another Motherboard.

--------------------
I'm not a hardcore gamer, I choose my games well but most of them are graphically intensive. So would I able to play games like BF3, Farcry 3, Crysis 3 at above average settings? I'm gonna be playing on a 1366 x 768 monitor, yes I know the resolution is not good but I'm not planning to buy a new monitor because it works fine for me.
