2 build options, wich one to choose?

hey I'm builing a new pc and thanks to a previous thread I now have a plan set up for my new pc however, I made another one, wich is a little bit more expensive but features an SSD. The point is: I can't choose so I'm posting it here so you guys can say wich one you like better, and why :)

build #1:
MOBO: Asrock z77 extreme 4
CPU: Intel 2500K
GPU: Asus GTX 660 Ti DCII TOP
PSU: corsair GS700
RAM: corsair Vengeance BLUE,1600,8GB
HDD: Hitachi 7K1000.C 500GB
SSD: OCZ AGILITY 3 180GB
ODD: LG DVR DL 22X, SATA
case: Zalman Z11 PLUS
€985,68
OR

build #2:
MOBO: Asrock Z77 Extreme4
CPU: Intel 3570K
GPU: EVGA GTX 670 FTW
PSU: Corsair GS700
RAM: Corsair Vengeance BLUE,2133-8GB LP

additional info: I'm from the Netherlands (not sure why you'd need to know, but just in case :) )
thanks!

  1. Get build 2. Get normal 8gb 1600mhz ram and use the left overs for an SSD. The ram speed won't really make any difference.

    I would go with build two and, this is just personal preference, I would go with a Western Digital HDD. Since you included a 670 and a 660ti, I am assuming that its a gaming build; an ssd won't help with FPS. If you are overclocking, and since you have a 3570k I am assuming you are, you also need a better CPU cooler; It will also decrease the noise.

    okay thanks for the info, it's indeed for gaming and for the overclocking i'm probably getting a mugen 3 PCGH edition :)
