Hi everyone I'm looking to build my first pc :)  I was wondering if this is any good:
i3 3225
Bitfenix prodigy
128gb samsung 840 ssd
500gb hdd
430w corsair psu
8gb corsair vengeance ram
asus p8h77-i

OR (around same price)
i5 3550
128gb samsung 840 ssd
500gb hdd
430w corsair psu
8gb corsair ram
Gigabyte z77-ds3h

I know the obvious choic is the i5 build however I cant find a case I like under 50 pounds :/  any recommendations?
