  1. lots and lots of wasted money.

    Listen, i'd take the Intel build even though it's a tremendous waste of money because of the single 1080p screen. Simply put in 1080p, you don't need much more then a GTX 680/670/770. So sticking a 780ti on that amd build is wasting a lot of cash as it's insane amounts of gpu power you'll never be able to see on a single 1080p monitor.
  2. For your builds, build 1 is better.

  3. hmm abit over priced stuff dont ya think this is alot! better. an 8350 is a clocked version of the 8320 no need to spend 20-30$ extra on a clocked version. also a little adjustments this should be great also the graphics card may not fit this case heres a better case. and massive cpu cooler.

  4. here is a better use of $2000; stuck a 1440p monitor onto it, which matches the 780 a lot better... swapped out some overpriced parts for some better values, and gave you a robust cpu cooler for some serious overclocking if the mood strikes you.

    This build destroys both your builds. A i7-4770k coupled with 780ti is unbeatable.

    yes, though with a 1080p screen it's largely wasted money.
