Undecided between two builds.

Hello,

In case you haven't figured out why I'm here yet, I'm building a PC. Just need some clarifications before I start buying stuff. Already bought the Samsung SSD, so ignore that for both builds. If you could please pick which one's better, and give me some suggestions on what to improve, that'd be fantastic. :D

BUDGET: ~$1000 USD

Build 1: http://pcpartpicker.com/list/RKxZJV Build 2: http://pcpartpicker.com/list/CB4t7h

Thanks guys! _^

Those are builds for different purposes, so it's kind of hard to say which is 'better' without knowing what you will do with the computer.

If you are gaming, the first one I5-6500 will be better simply because it has the gtx 1070 in it vs the 1060 in the I7 build.

also, that I5 build comes with a cpu cooler with the CPU so you could remove the cooler and save the $50 to put into something else as well.
