This is my first build that i was going with: A http://pcpartpicker.com/list/pmPt3F

This is the second one which i think is stronger?: B http://pcpartpicker.com/list/hHtVFd

Which one would you build if u had the choice/ any changes that you guys want to make for A (first build) or B(Second build) that would better the system. Any other tips?

Thanks all!!!

The second one for sure. The first build has many unnecessary items and costs more. What is this build for? Whats your budget?

i really have budget under 3k, used for intense gaming and tons of video editing and rendering.

I replaced the monitor with a higher resolution monitor with G-sync. I also added a HDD for more storage as 500GB will fill up fairly quickly. Do you plan to SLI in the near future? Unless you do, you could use a lower wattage psu. Even using SLI a 750W unit is fine. At that budget, you may even want to look at the X-99 platform especially since you plan on video editing and rendering.

I rather have build two.

What will this be used for? With a 1080p monitor, the GTX 1080 is way overkill.

Realistically would you need 6-cores? No, but you had the budget. The monitor is an IPS monitor with 1ms response time. If you don't fancy IPS, you can get a TN panel with higher than 60hz.
