Hey, wanting build a budget gaming PC that can play older games at Ultra and some new games Higher/Ultra such as BF3, Crysis 3 etc.
I've already made two pre builts before i purchase. So let me know what you guys think. Will be buying in the next week.

Cheers

Out of those two builds I've just seen. I would definitely pick the Intel 3570 build.
However, if you would prefer to stay under budget (or you prefer the slightly flashier case) , the fx6300 option is still reasonably solid. Especially with up and coming games starting to use more cores..
However, I would definitely get the MSI GTX 650ti boost over the EVGA standard 650ti. The performance can vary quite a bit between the cards, and for the extra $5, definitely worth it...

Would the Intel make a much of a difference compared to that of the AMD? speed/gaming wise?

Yes. Intel are generally stronger than AMD, core -> core.
I chose the 4670 ( the next gen 3570) over an AMD cpu because of this....
However, games are likely going to start utilizing more than 4 cores very soon (3570 has 4 cores, FX 6300 has 6)
So although the 3570 is stronger than the FX 6300, AMD may be a better option long term because of the additional cores..
Saying that, Intel certainly has the better power options in comparison to AMD. Its your choice really... Either option is good, although if I decided to go down the AMD route, I would probably try fit a FX 8350 into my budget ( the 8 core equivalent of the FX 6300).

As I said, you cant really go wrong either way, and too be honest, in the FX 8350 vs HD 3570 battle (I believe the FX 6300 is just as strong as the 8350 core -> core, and as the only games bench marked are quad core games), the winning cpu often only wins by a couple of frames, it doesn't make any difference to the real gaming experience.

The additional core will also help with video rendering if you are ever going to be doing anything like that...

ah okay. yeah i think im gonna go for the AMD to be future proof and save a bit on my wallet. Just 2 more questions, do you think I'll need additional fans for the Case and CPU and will my power supply be enough?

Get a 500w PSu from Antec, XFX, Corsair, Seasonic. (except the CX line from corsair)

Drop the CPU cooler. It will not be any better than the stock cooler.

Power supply looks good. Corsair makes good power supplies and 550w is certainly enough for this system.
Unfortunately I cant find the case specs??
I personally would want at least two fans in my pc tho, one drawing cool air from the front and another blowing it out the back. I use a cm storm enforcer and currently have stock fans (one 200m in the front and a 120m out the back) but I am looking to add a 200m fan to the top and replace the 120m at the back.

In other words, 1 is pretty sketchy, 2 is enough, 3 is really nice and for slightly obsessive people like me :p 
As tiny voices said (I should have pointed this out), the cpu cooler you chose is unnecessary and probably not much better than stock. I personally am using a stock cpu cooler atm and its perfectly fine for stock speeds on your cpu.
