I prefer the second build, the first build has extra costs that aren't needed at all..... Based on raw performance, the second will definitely outperform the first build.

However, I do recommend you doing your own research to find a better combination of parts, the first is really based on cosmetic improvements while the second is focused on performance, so I'd recommend blending the two to match your needs and not just copy someone else's build.

The CPU in your second list is clocked too low for a gaming machine. If you're ready to drop $650 on a CPU, overclock a 5930k and make up for the four fewer cores with nearly twice the clock speed.
