Go with the 2nd one and change this:

Motherboard: Asrock z77 Extreme4 (or 6 since it is currently on sale @ newegg)
SSD: 128 GB seems to be the sweet spot. The 60GB you will probably fill up immediately.

Everything else looks good. Keep in mind you cannot overclock H77 motherboards, get a z77.

You could do better honestly. The 660 Ti is worse than the 7870 and 7950 on average for roughly the same/less cost:

Check out my $1100 build here:

Get the HAF 922 instead of the Phantom and it'll put you at $1051. Buy OS here:

It'll total to be $1120 you need a DVD burner:

Good to go.

The OS site is BBB approved company with an A+ rating so you're solid there!
