More about which price quality
  1. The I5 build stronger GPU and CPU. Some adjustments like for gaming 8GB ram is plenty and Thermaltake is not a recommended PSU brand better of with Corsair, Antec, Seasonic or XFX to name few.

    rolli nailed it - I'm just throwing my .02 in to reiterate that either
    build shaould have a better psu. rolli listed the brands.

    Tom

    if that TT 500 is the 'purepower' model it is on the johnnylucky.org
    Lemon List:

    Purepower 500 Not 500 watts as advertised. Could only deliver 400 watts for a few seconds. +12 voltage lower than minimum allowed. Could not achieve efficiency rating above 300 watts. Hardware Secrets

    so def stay away from it
