Ok so I found these two very reasonably priced barebones bundles from Tiger Direct today. My goal is to use them for mostly gaming such as games like Diablo 3, Guild Wars 2, WOW and future games that release. These are the specs:

FIRST BUNDLE:

- MSI 760GM-E51 (FX) AMD 760 Motherboard
- AMD FX-8120 Processor (8 Core) 3.10Ghz
- Sony Optiarc 24x DVDRW Drive 24x SATA
- Corsair 4GB DDR3 RAM 1333Mhz
- ^ Again for a total of 8GB of RAM
- Seagate Barracuda 1TB Hard Drive SATA
- 450W PSU

SECOND BUNDLE:

- Intel Core i5-3570K CPU 3.40GHz (4 Core)
- GIGABYTE GA-Z77-DS3H Intel 7 Series Motherboard
- ADATA 8GB DDR3 RAM 1333Mhz
- Seagate 1TB HDD
- 24x DVDRW
- 650W PSU

I was hoping to purchase this GPU, the Galaxy GeForce GTX 560 1GB Video Card

ANY input would be much appreciated as to what the better unit would be to run these games at max settings along with the GPU, I don't want to go over these prices because Im on a budget. Thanks to all who take the time to read this!

The intel is the better option , I assume it costs more toothough because the AMD set up includes a cheaper processor and a budget mb

In the end the settings you can run games at will be more determined by your graphics card , and importantly , the resolution of your screen

If you can afford, then second bundle is the best option. But there need to be a better gpu as Outlander_04 said.

Second build has more value and is a better frame for a gaming PC.
Just throw in something like a HD7850 or better and you will be playing modern games very nicely at 1080p.
