I would make changes to each of those builds. Are they prepackaged bundles or can you pick and choose your own parts? Maybe fill out the build advice form in my signature first.

Is the budget euros or US dollars? I'd probably try to pick out the parts separately - maybe an i5-2500K, a ASRock P67 EXTREME4, 4GB of 1333MHz RAM, a 1TB HDD like the Spinpoint F3, Corsair TX750 V2, and a 560TI. Don't know exactly how that fits into your budget, but check it out and let us know.

Edit: replaced 6950 with 560TI, thanks motopsychojdn
@OP the 6950 is still fine too if you don't have a strong preference.

I'd say its in Euros J,
nothing to add over what you've said already though, except that Op expressed a liking for Nvid cards, dont know how fixed that love is though :p 
**Edit, np J, I forgot to ask in my first post though,
@Op, what are you going to use this pc for? just gaming or....
