The first one, an APU isn't going to cut it for editing.

the FX is going to do a lot better than that APU because the FX is a hexa core cpu compared to a quad core APU.

The first one would do better in video editing.

I revised your build a little bit:

Motherboard will support a better overclock.

PSU is still fine, gold vs bronze is efficiency.

GPU, the r9 270x wouldn't be able to fully utilize the 4gb of vRAM, it's pointless unless you're playing skyrim on with a bunch of high res mods and enbs or something. You could further reduce the price by dropping the card to a MSi r9 270 gaming, which is basically the r9 270x but lower clocked and uses less power.

Optical, i just changed it to something to something cheaper.

The reason for that is the price. The 750w is cheaper, which lets me mitigate the rest of the build around to keep the price around the same.

They'd perform the same at stock. The change in the motherboard will allow for a better overclock if you're going for that in the future.
