    There you go, took out the ssd, hdd and optical drive. I would suggest getting an ssd down the road as it will speed up your system. You can add an ssd now, but it would mean dropping to a lower cpu or gpu, and the trade off would not be worth it for you at this moment.

    I would personally go for the AMD build because you can put more money into the GPU. On the Intel I would actually suggest a GTX 760 http://pcpartpicker.com/part/asus-video-card-gtx760dc2oc2gd5 because on amazon, you cant get a R9 280 for under 1200 but you can get a 760.
