AMD Radeon said:
the difference lies on the GPU card. nvidia vs radeon

btw both build have a weak mobo
replace them with this one

Then which GPU is the stronger one? And idc about the mobo because ill be flat broke after this so i wont upgrade for a loooong while and mobo has a minuscule affect on gaming that is within margin of error of difference

gtx 760 is faster, but see the price....
radeon 270 offer superb value. at $150, it can be overclocked to 270X speed which is similar to gtx 760

this will save your pocket, and still gaining more performance
mobo, cpu, and cpu cooler is for OC
GPU can be OCed too
if you didnt know about Overclocking, you can learn it later if you already fluent enough with hardware
