Hi this is my first time building my on PC at home i am still in the process of selecting components for it i have here two builds that i think will serve my purpose i want to know which one is better and where i can get the best bang for my buck. I play SWTOR and WoW so whatever the build i want to be sure that it can max out both those games and still play smoothly. Please any feedback is good, thanks.

Chances are these suggestions are going to cost a bit.
Get a Z77 motherboard, better suites the Ivy bridge processor.
Get the i5 3570k, it allows overclocking.
SSD boot drive would be good, but not essential at this budget.
Better GPU, the HD7850 is the same price(ish) and is better. Only in the battlefield test did it fall below the 560Ti. http://www.hardwareheaven.com/reviews/1437/pg1/sapphire...
