You cannot overclock on that motherboard.

DO NOT get 2 weak GPUs. get a single strong card. It is ALWAYS better.

Your motherboard will not actually crossfire.

PSU is not good. stick with antec, XFX,Corsair, Seasonic.

this is all for the first build. The second link does not work.

The first one is okay.Ii would not spend the money on SLI, buy a different gpu like corsair or seasonic are some of the most reliable gpus around, and I would also select a different mother board.I have a ASrocks z77 motherboard and it works very well and I have had no problems. THey have just released a new version for the 4th generation haswell processors that has just as high ratings I would just invest in a single graphics card such as the next gen AMD Radeon R9 270X 2 GB or the 280X 3GB. The first card is 200 dollars and the second one is 300 dollars they are a bit better than the current 7800 and 7900 series of AMD graphics cards. This build should be sufficent for the current generation and for at least 1 to 2 years more.
Some links to help:
GPU:
AMD Radeon R9 270X 2 GB

motherboard:
ASRock Z87 Extreme4 LGA 1150 Intel Z87

PSU:
SeaSonic G Series SSR-550RM 550W

Corsair TX 650

FYI:if you want modular the HX series is also available for corsair.
