Custom build feedback please- gaming computer under $600

I'm looking at building a decent gaming desktop computer for under $600. I have put together two parts lists on PCPartsPicker and would love your thoughts. I don't have the confidence to KNOW if I'm doing a good job or not so any feedback would be great! Also if you have some other great ideas please share :) Thank you so much for any help you can give.

  1. I would choose the first one, because it has a r9 380 4gb, although the i5 4590 is better, but if I were you I would save 100$ and get this build (699$) Totally worth the extra money, it includes an i5 4590 and a r9 380 4gb, and also a motherboard and psu that supports crossfire :)

    This is better than either. There are too many things wrong with your first build to "fix" and the second one is not balanced enough.
