More about which build gaming
  1. if you can replace in your first build mobo for asus or asrock and get 2x4gb ram sticks then it's gonna be better.

    Second build flaw is PSU, get an Antec, Seasonic, XFX, Corsair or PC Power and Cooling, Silverstone. ~ 520-550w. At least 80+ bronze quality. then it's gonna dominate first.
  2. vote #1 :) antec psu, cm case, and 3450 all better than #2 parts
  3. I vote #1 too
  4. Number one with number two's RAM.

    The only difference between the two builds is the case and PSU, which dont affect gaming performance in any way (though a horrible PSU like that Rosewill Green will affect the systems lifespan).
