Ok so here i am again... a friend of mine asked me to build a system for him. can you select which will perform better. My friend only play online games and hes not much into details but he just wants to play it on a decent system. So heres what i had for him to choose

BTW the price is only a conversion since im not in the U.S. it includes other peripherals like mouse, keybord etc. thats why its around $600

This one is much cheaper for his budget at less $600

AMD Trinity A10-5800K 3.8Ghz
FM2 Asrock AR-FM2A75M-DGS Motherboard
Gskill Ares 8gb 4gbx2 Ddr3 1600 CL9
Fsp Raider 550watts 80PLUS Bronze
Internal WD Caviar Blue 500GB WD5000AAKX Sata3
Any 18.5 LED monitor

This one exceeds the budget morethan $600

Intel Core i3 3220 3.3GHz (Dual Core)
lga1155 Gigabyte GA-B75M-D3V
Gskill Ares 8gb 4gbx2 Ddr3 1600 CL9
Sapphire HD 6670 1024mb gddr5 128bit
Fsp Raider 550watts 80PLUS Bronze
Internal WD Caviar Blue 500GB WD5000AAKX Sata3
Any 18.5 LED monitor

A10 seems like a deal breaker, and has igpu that handles games good enough. That way you don't have to buy discrete gpu.
But change ram to 1866MHz as it would boost igpu performance (loves faster ram)

if i change to 1866MHz how much difference can it acquire instead of using the 1600? or its just minimal?

It's not minimal, it's pretty noticeable between 1333-1600-1866 each step gives decent boost. It becomes minimal after 1866. If i'm not mistaken it's around 10 fps more at 1866 than at 1600.
Edit: okay it's not 10 fps but still, check this game tests with different ram mhz
