In my opinion they are about the same. The difference is $14 and the GPU is the same. They are both good gaming pc's and 14 dollars difference won't make a big difference but in the end I would go for the 1st one.

Both are big waste of cash. Neither motherboard allows overclocking, while both processors are designed for overclocking. The guys who assembled them either wanted to make fun out of buyers or were high.

I also bet they both have garbage PSUs.

Last but not least - I've never seen 19" monitors with 1920x1080 resolution..

There you go, MUCH MUCH better deal.

If it's too much, you can drop down GTX 680 to GTX 670.

Sunius nice recommendation but the thread starter should know HOW to build a pc ;) 
I agree that it is stupid to buy a CPU which is an overclock version while you cannot overclock with that motherboard but he will be able to play his games ;)

Do you have any local computer shops which you can give links to?

Also, did you watch the videos? Trust me, it looks harder than it is, I've done it myself for the first time 10 months ago: the hardest part was to get determination and courage to buy the parts. When parts arrived, I already knew what to do from the videos I've watched: it took me 2 hours to fully build it. I highly recommend you doing the same. Just watch the videos and you'll see that it's not harder than legos :) .

Do not forget to look at the motherboard manual! Every motherboard is different but in general they are the same.
