Hi I am having trouble pick between 2 builds can you guys help me out please! :pt1cable:  I want to use the rig for gaming.

The first build is http://pcpartpicker.com/uk/p/l3UN

The second build is http://pcpartpicker.com/uk/p/l3IA

I know that they are both very simular but which one is better the second build is cheaper which is good for me but is it the better build.

Personally, I'd say a mix of both.
CML RAM
Samsung SSD
Gigabyte GPU.

That's fine. Basically, it's go with build 2, just use the RAM, from build 1, rather than the xms.

I'd go with build #2 but switch the RAM to G.Skill Ares and the case to the Corsair 300R (if it's available).

ok thanks guys this has helped me to select the parts that I need and I did favour the 2nd build anyway :)  but this has made it clear that I should change my ram and I will then select that case unless the price increases on it.

thanks guys!

If you can't get the 300R I would suggest the Antec 300 Illusion or the Fractal Design Arc MIDI.
