That intel build is better. They both have the same gpu. The i5 will destroy that 6100 cpu. Get that intel pc it's the Right choice

Watch that PSU - 400 W is quite small, and presumably by that case it is simply a "Grey-Box" cheap one. They are prone to blow up, so I would seriously consider getting a brand PSU like Corsair, Antec, XFX etc.

They are both ok for gaming but the i5 wil win in gaming and in more multhithreaded aps the fx wil win.

Actually this isn't a high end FX 8 Core or even one of their best 6 Cores, so the Core i5 will beat it in 99% of all tasks.
And still from the looks of it, both PC's are very low quality, with cheap cases, barely acceptable power supplies and low end graphics cards.

I don't know how much you're willing to spend, but i made you a PC that is twice faster than the Intel one you have listed (in gaming).
