So those are the parts but I wasn't sure if some of the parts made the case unbalance or couldn't handle the other parts. I would mainly use the computer to video edit, render, play minecraft, tf2, record with fraps, and maybe a little cod. So if you could, can you please give me some suggestions or tips on how to improve the build. Thanks!
Both builds are great, just pick one that you think will serve you better.
Your friends are probably just jumping on the Nvidia bandwagon and have no actual knowledge of present GPU performance, prices, and benchmarks.
To answer your question, AMD and Nvidia are both great companies and they both dominate the GPU market.
As of this moment though, AMD cards are a step ahead on price vs performance, mostly due to the fact that Nvidia is too stubborn to give price cuts or something.
