I'm looking for a gaming rig and I've seen several choices, but I'm sorta lost here. I've been considering the following.

AMD FX8350 8x4.0GHz
8GB Kingston Value RAM DDR3-1600
GTX 750TI 2GB
ASUS M5A78L-M/USB3
500 Watt LC500H-12 V2.2 SILENT

Intel Core i5 Haswell 4670 4x3,40GHz
MSI H81M-E33 V2
8GB DDR3 PC1600
Nvidia Geforce GTX760 2GB HDMI

- Mainboard: MSI B85-G41
- CPU: Intel Core i7 - 4770 Haswell
- 8 GB DDR3RAM PC 1600 - Dual Channel
- Palit Geforce GTX750Ti - 2GB OC Storm X
-Thermaltake 530W- 80Plus

3.8GHz AMD FX 4300
2 GB nVidia Geforce GTX 770
GIGABYTE GA-78LMT-USB3 AM3+ AMD 760G + SB710 HDMI USB 3.0 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
600W PSU
8 GB

Other than those, I've come across these 2 used rigs

AMD FX 8350 (8x 4,00GHZ)
Powercolor HD7870 GHZ Edition
8gb DDR3 1866 G-Skill Sniper
Corsair CX500M 500Watt
Gigabyte 970A-UD3 (Revision 3.0)

AMD 8350
ASUS Crosshair Formula V
GTX 670
8GB DDR3 Corsair Vengeance
500 Watt PCU

They're priced fairly similarly (~700 Euros), so I wanted to ask how good one of those would be for gaming and how well would it go into the future? Or am I better of making one of my own?

It's a bit hard to choose. There's one with a GTX770, which would be the strongest build graphically, but it has a FX4300 CPU. The CPU could bottleneck that GPU a bit.

i7 4770 with a GTX750Ti, probably not a good enough GPU for such an epic CPU.

I'd say the Core i5 4670 with the GTX760 is a nice build, but with a GTX770 would be even better.

+1, the i5 4670 with the GTX 760 would be the best option, the GTX 750Ti lacks performance, and for gaming, the i5 4670 will perform almost exactly the same to an i7 4770, no noticeable difference in gameplay.
