What computer should I choose

Hallo all :) Sorry my english is not so good. But what computer should I choose. I have selected two amd and intel. The computer should only be for gaming. I may well suggest other parts. My budget is about 1041$ to 1215,11$ (804 euro to 939,11)

Intel:
Power supply: corsair cx 500w psu
Processor: Intel® Core i5-3570K Processor
Mainboard: MSI B75MA-P45, Socket-1155
DDR3: Crucial DDR3 BallistiX Sport 1600MHz 8GB
SSD: Kingston HyperX 3K SSD 120GB 2.5"
Harddisk: Seagate Barracuda® 1TB
Case: NZXT LEXA S Midi Tower
graphics card: evga geforce GTX 660 2gb Physx cuda

Amd:
Graphics card: GIGABYTE Radeon HD 7970 OC - 3GB GDDR5
Processor: AMD FX-8350 Black - AM3+ - Box
Power supply: Corsair CX500 V2 - 500W PSU
Mainboard: MSI 970A-G46
DDR3: Crucial 8GB DDR3 1600MHz (2x4)Ballistix
SSD:Kingston HyperX 3K SSD 120GB 2.5"
Harddisk: Seagate Barracuda 7200.14 - 1TB

It´s the same case to both.
Hope you can help, many thanks in advance. :)

    I wouldn't quite say so actually.

    For one, an intel core i5 3570k is unlocked and can reach very high overclocking capabilities and the AMD FX 8350 doesn't I'm afraid.

    And the Intel core i5 3570k still beats on of AMD's top cores, the 8350: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a8_dh4b0jL8

    + the i5 3570k has turbo boost technology while AMD 8350 does not.
    I would definitely go with the Intel choice as it is more future proof and it goes brilliantly with a 660.

    Depends on where you live
  8. I live in Denmark
  9. First option of course.
    But if you're not going to overclock, there's no point of getting a 'K' series processor. And if you're, get a decent Z77 and also a decent cpu cooler. I'd suggest ASRock Z77 Extreme4 as a motherboard and a Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO as a cooler.

    In the end, if you don't need one very urgently; wait for Haswell. I'd strongly recommend for that.
  10. From Where are you going to buy the parts?
    Mindfactory.de has good prices... They ship to denmark

  11. Okay but I thinked I will choose from www.proshop.dk
  12. Do you want to overclock?
