build #1 hands down
make sure you get i5 3570K --------- with K for unlocked cpu
and DDR3-1866 ---> intel favors ddr3 1600 :) 

people will tell you how intel i5 performs far better than AMD in GAME and still consumes less power
8350 will only win in some cases, heavy video rendering etc

Are you gonna be overclocking? What's your budget? Do you need OS?

Not that much, but I will. 800-850€. No need for OS.
