Hello everybody!

I am undecided between these 2 systems that i've put together. Which one should i buy cosidering the following:

Purchase date: 10.09.2012 - 20.09.2012
Budget range: 600 EUR / 760 USD
System Usage: Gaming (mostly)
Monitor: Will get a 1080p one after i buy the PC
Overclocking: I don't want to do it, at least not in the next 1.5-2 years

I want to appologise for the fact that i am writing 2 currencies and that the links are not to an english site, but i hope you can understand the specifications.

As you can see, the price difference is about 60 EUR / 75 USD
The Intel system is at the very edge of my budget (i really can't get passed 605 EUR / 762 USD

So i have a few questions and i hope you guys can answer me:

1) Which one should i go for?
2)Should i change/add anything?
3)Will it be a noticeable performance difference between the two?

I am waiting for your oppinions. Thanks in advance!

the intel based one will generally play better, as the i5-3450 is a true quad core(the 4170 is closer to an i3-2120)
