go for the 1st build ofc... overkill on RAM/PSU...
you don't need a fast ram... it will help you much in gaining performance...
750+W should be more than enough... get Seasonic X-850
you should go for GTX 670 4GB instead... GTX 680 is really not that worthy... you can even buy a GTX titan instead of 2x GTX 680...LOL

Get the first build, go down on your power around 850W is enough, save that money and get a 1866 ram is good enough though I recommend 1600. Platinum and gold psu aren't much of a difference probably 1-2% more efficient(its just a marketing strategy) save that money and upgrade ssd with more storage? 3 way sli gtx 670 2gb is good enough(probably same price) better performance though.

If this is real. Go for custom watercool system.

Take better case so you can fit bigger radiator in.

420-560mm is fine.

Then fittings , hose, reservoir, backplates and so on.

Good case to fit custom loop are Lian-Li TJ-11 and Enermax Fullmo GT etc.
Or if you want to go BIG then this one is for you:
