Efficiency Comparison (CAD/GAMING) - Input appreciated

Hi I haven't included accessories but one is slightly made of slightly newer parts hence I'm concerned about cost/value for money The first of the two originally had a sabertooth X97 but its BIOS was going to need updating to I updated the entire board instead (being lazy)

These are my first two hypothetical builds :) rip them to shreds please

Cheers

Also does anyone know why the 5820k is cheaper than the 4930k..? I'm a complete rookie and will take whatever's good on paper
