Are these good builds for gaming? Which one is better.

Im in the stages of planning a ~600 gaming PC, the problem is, I dont know what my build should look like. I think I would rather go with the Intel i5 build but the other fx8350 build is less expensive;

The build I like the best:

    The FX8350 build is terrible. Lets get that out of the way.

    You need to buy a BETTER psu no matter what. Don't be afraid to get an i3 6100. At your budget, it's probably best anyway. It is better for gaming than the FX8350 anyway.


    Here, I managed to keep your i5, improve the build by getting a better motherboard, 2x4Gb RAM, and psu all while making it cheaper.
