Hello,
Motherboard wise PC No.1 is better as Z77 chipset is better than H77
When it comes to the CPU, the first is better as well, however some might argue that SB is easier to overclock in comparison to IB
RAM wise, of course that the second PC is superior
when it comes to storage, I'm leaning towards the second PC as well. Even though there's only 1TB of storage, it turns faster, thus generaly providing lower access times.
And when it comes to graphics card, The GTX 670 is superior to the 580 both performance and power wise.

I would recommend the PC No.2 ;)

so the loss of cpu power/oc option is worth the extra gpu from the better gcard? from a gaming perspective aiming at bf3 arma3 and skyrim

I built a PC for a frend recently, which combined the reference GTX 670, which was factory OC, and an i5-3450. That processor's performance is similiar to the i5-2500k at stock speeds. And all games except for two run at 60+ FPS - Crysis 2 with high res text pack and DX11 and Metro 2034. The card is utilized at 100% and it overclocks itself to as high as 1150 MHz. And what about the CPU utilization? Well, I've never seen it hit 100%, which leads me conclude that GPUs are more imortant than CPUs when it comes to gaming and in most games it's the GPU that will be bottle-necking your system.

P.S. The GTX 670 had no problems cooping with BF3 at ultra settings and Skyrim with high res texture pack, 60+ FPS everywhere. Oh, and both i5-2500K and i5-3570k processors are really similar when it comes to CPU performance, it's the integrated graphics that was greatly improved with the new IB processors, but since you'll be using a dedicated GPU, integrated graphic's does not bother you.

No problem. And remember if anything- just ask. ;)

im guessing that every1 agrees with mInInOwA since there have been no further comments by any1. the conclusion being that a Intel Core i5 3570K - 3,4Ghz - Ivy Bridge with a z77 mobo and a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 580OC 1.5GB GDDR5 800Mhz is inferior in gaming too a Intel® Core i5 2500K - 3.3GHz - 6MB with a h77 mobo and a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 670 2GB GDDR5 (965Mhz). PC 2 is the choosen one :)
