I would probably lean towards the first build because of the HD 5770, I would say that's a much better card than the HD 5670, and the GPU is so important for gaming. In addition to Newegg, check out Amazon (e.g. see here) and SuperBiiz (see here) for prices on RAM--I've found Amazon and Superbiiz to have very competitive, if not better prices.

Beyond that, looks great! Hope this helps!

option 3:

Athlon II X3 450 and the GTX 460 768 MB (Or the 460 SE 1 GB if your res is 1920x1080)

Yup, a triple core (435 upwards), 5770 and a decent 600w psu is my guideline for a Wowmachine, overkill on the Psu maybe, but once you unlock/overclock the cpu and
Gpu it makes sense to have the extra headroom,
I run two with cheaper psu's but thats my shoddy worksmanship lol
