  1. The 2nd one destroys the other.

    The CPU is way better, as it's one of the best out there. Also a z77 motherboard that allows overclocking.

    8gb of 1600 mhz ram too, which is a faster speed than 1333 mhz.

    Video card is also better than the GTX 670, under certain circumstances. They are both pretty evenly matched though.

    Get the 2nd one. It'll do you best.
  2. Well, if you plan to overclock, be sure that whatever one you pick has a CPU cooler.

    Also be sure to pick a good power supply.
  3. The second is much better. Say no more.
