SO what would you all recommend getting, my first set or second?

#1 AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition Deneb 3.2GHz Socket AM3 125W Quad-Core Processor
BIOSTAR TA790GXB3 AM3 AMD 790GX ATX AMD Motherboard - Retail
XFX HD-583X-ZNFV Radeon HD 5830 1GB 256-bit DDR5
OCZ Platinum 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600
hec XPOWER780 780W ATX12V v2.3 SLI NVIDIA HYBRID-SLI Certified CrossFire Certified Active PFC Power Supply - Retail
Windows 7
500 gb hard drive
dvd burner
Or....
#2 Intel Core i5-650 3.2GHz LGA 1156 73W Dual-Core Desktop Processor
BIOSTAR TH55B HD Micro ATX Intel Motherboard - Retail
Radeon 5770
4gb 1600mhx ram
Same power supply and case, same hard drive and DVD burner.

Bother computers are the same price... Anyone think ones better then the other? And would the case/power supply work okay, or should I look for another power supply/case?

Your first build is better as obsidian86 said. I would change out the PSU to a better quality PSU for either build. Here is a build I would recommend for $977.90, which may or may not be too much over your current budget.

PSU/GPU Combo: Corsair CMPSU-650TX and XFX Radeon HD 5830
RAM: G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR3 1600
HDD: Samsung Spinpoint F3 500GB
DVD: ASUS SATA 24X DVD Burner
Case: Cooler Master HAF 922
OS: Windows 7 Home Preimum 64-bit

Okay thanks... Yea my budget is about 800-900$ Because I also need a monitor... Would I loose performance if I got a different processor that isent as good as the phenom II and got a better case and power supply? Got any idea for a good computer case thats fairly cheap?
