Hi guys,
I was just wondering if I could get some opinions on hardware configurations? Wich would be better for playing all modern gamed on high to ultra settings? I play a mixture of games that are both CPU and GPU intense such as Minecraft and Battlefield so I need the best of the 2 'worlds'

I have come up with two possible configurations, could I please have some advice?

Intel Build:

AMD build:

I have a budget of 1200AUD however I have come to realise that i probably wont be able to meet that, could anyone help me get as close as I cna to that whilst still being able to run most modern games on Ultra at 1080p?
Thanks in advance

Out of those 2 the 4670 is the better processor. But why get a aftermarket cooler on a CPU you won't be overclocking?

4670 is the better especially compare to a FX 6300.
212 is great for keeping your cpu cool and quiet even if your not overclocking.

Would you guys happen to know anyway to get the cost down? without compromising too much performance?

There isn't much to do to get the cost down significantly, I mean you could probably find a few things cheaper by a bit, but for the most part it is pretty good the way it is imo.
