would be nice to get an ssd but then it goes way off your suggested budget builds

the videocards that you chose will not fit in most mid tower cases and will not fit in the case that you chose


out of your builds the second one is the best;
i5-3570k
7970 or 670 for gpu

well looking at performance the i5-3570k is really the best cpu for "gaming"
but the first and most important is the gpu, so i say the second build cuz it has a pretty nice gpu 7950 but at same time comes with a CPU that can later be overclocked ;) 


the asrock pro4 motherboard aint bad for gaming either, but it will not overclock as well as extrem4
