If I were to choose I would go with the first one. But to be honest, I wouldn't choose any of the two. I would have gone to the intel build but hey, you can upgrade that gpu man, at least a 7850/7870. You can also cut down cost of the cpu by going with a 3470. not much of a performance difference with 3570 for a non-overclock build.

IF you do NOT want to upgrade system later. Go with the AMD build (2nd), Because overall you will have much nicer graphics with it. The first build lacks the graphics, if you could throw in a better video card, for the first build, it would be the winner easily, but like previous post said, you could always upgrade later ;)  just spending money twice is kind of .... ****

Not junk - just not as efficient clock-for-clock or in Power usage. The first build with the second gpu would be the cat's A$$.
