Hey there everyone, after going through afew revisions of what I want in a PC, I've narrowed it down to two builds. After rebate's and everything they'll both be about the same price (a 2$ difference). Their only major difference is look, but hey, that's important too, so any and all Input is appreciated.

Build II: Rev IV:

The site may say there is a conflict in Rev V between my case and CPU cooler, but I have friends who've made a build using the two parts, and all I have to do is remove the top 200MM Fan in the Level 10 GT case and put in thep Fans/Rad on the Corsair H100i. Also, I'd be buying the Thermaltake Level 10 GT Case (Black) not the Snow edition, it just so happens that this site doesn't show the Black one, but I have the black/red version of the case saved on Newegg and It's the same exact price.

So, Have at you PcPartPick-ians! Which Should I Build?
