I wouldn't get any of them. They are all overpriced for the components they have in them. But if I had to pick one, it would be 2.
For your build, the cpu is way to strong for that gpu. I would get 8gb ram, and a 1tb hard drive. You could probably get a 7850 with the money you saved. Also, get a better monitor.

Prices here are not like US(kinda jealous). I understand in US with $1000 you can get a superb machine already. I cant get the 7850 with the money I saved. 8GB RAM cost 189(330-189=RM124), 1TB Hard drive has RM 20 difference. 124+20+249=RM393(HD 6750)+ vs HD 7850 RM849.I cam just wait a for another month to get a GTX 560Ti/650. I'll probably change the monitor.
