I'm about to order a pre built gaming pc.

These are my 2 options:

Option 1:
Corsair Carbide 200R Komplett Edition
Cooler Master G650M, 650W PSU
Intel Core i5-4670K
Gigabyte G1.Sniper B5, Socket-1150
Kingston DDR3 HyperX 1600MHz 8GB
MSI GeForce GTX 770 2GB PhysX CUDA
Kingston SSDNow V300 120GB 2.5" OEM

Option 2:
Corsair Carbide 200R Komplett Edition
Corsair CX 600M, 600W PSU
AMD FX-8320 Black Edition
Gigabyte GA-970A-DS3P, Socket-AM3+
Kingston DDR3 HyperX 1600MHz 8GB
XFX Radeon R9 290 4GB GDDR5
Kingston SSDNow V300 120GB 2.5" OEM

I want to be able to play games like Battlefield 4 on high settings.

Is there any benefits of using an AMD cpu with Radeon GPU's or should i choose Option 1 but with a Radeon R9 290 instead of the gtx 770 card?

I'd go with build one, but try to get an ASUS Direct CUII 770 3gb card.

Neither of those PSUs are very good. Change to Antec, XFX, Corsair (NOT cx), Seasonic.

Did anyone bother to read that these were prebuilts?

@pernissilla I'd like to ask if you are knowledgeable enough to swap parts or build a computer. It seems a lot of posters assume you know how to but I'd like to be certain.

I can change the graphics card to a "ASUS GeForce GTX 770 2GB PhysX CUDA DirectCU II OC"
Forgive my ignorance, but what extra does DirectCU II provide?

They are really built on demand. The configuration can be changed before i order. I want the company to build it so that i get warranty ;)

Most computer parts come with 4-6 year warranties so actually if you build it yourself you will have a better warranty on each part.
