I am looking to buy a gaming computer for diablo 3. I want it to run diablo 3 on high setting without lag. I have about 700$ right now but i can get more if needed. I want a desktop. I would like it to be prebuilt but if it's a good deal for better quality and price i will build it. I haven't built a computer before though.
i was looking at these

The one with the i5-2500k is a much better system than the one with the FX-6100. It's just a vastly better processor in absolutely every way.

this one seems to have a better graphics card i think
but lower CPU? I'm not sure so I'm asking you.
and is there a difference between NVIDIA Geforce GTX 550Ti Graphic Card and Geforce GTX 550Ti Graphic Card
i'v seen both but i think they are the same

The 550 Ti isn't that great of a card. It's a solid low end card, but it's not going to be maxing out settings in modern games at 1080p. For that, you'll need to spend around $200 (or more, depending on the game) on the GPU alone.

I think these kits are a good starting point, but I think you'd get better results picking and choosing the components yourself, that way you know you get exactly what you want/need. $700 is certainly enough to build a budget gaming rig, but you're going to have to make some sacrifices.

If you're only interested in gaming, you can get a slower CPU because the GPU is by far the most important component in gaming. Saving $75 on a CPU means you can spend $75 more on the GPU and crank those settings up.
