Which would be better for gaming?

since you seem to want AMD graphic card in both, AMD processor is best since you can use Mantle if that becomes a thing, getting a AMD APU would allow for Crossfire aswell.

I'd go for the Intel Build.

 

Mantle doesn't require an AMD CPU so that is really a non-factor.

You can use mantle with Intel CPUs.

 

You've put down a lot of money on fans I'd reallocate that to the GPU and fancier fans can more later

Id pick up an 8320

switch the board out for a Gigabyte 990FX-UD3

Then try and get a 280x in there

I chose AMD Graphics card in both builds because both the Intel and the AMD can run crossfire. the Intel couldn't run SLI

I'd go for the Intel Build.

What? Crossfire and SLI are down to the motherboard you choose

the motherboards one of the best look up jazzytwocents he made a video on it, its perfect for your budget

you forgot to say cpu, its just a 8350 with a lower clock but if you were to oc it you would get better if not the same performance

ram, lifetime warranty good speed and looks nice

There's a reason why the whole parts list is under $1700  ..for peripherals. I would recommend other peripherals but I don't feel like knocking them and asking about + explaining better alternatives to Razer. Basically, I felt lazy.

 

The bbcode takes up a lot of space and becomes annoying once they pile up in a thread.
