    So, first of all... Which PC out of these two?

    550W PSU - 12CM Quiet Fan
    Intel Core i5 4 Core 2500K 3.3Ghz 6MB L3 CACHE
    HEATSINK/FAN FOR CPU INCLUDED (Possible upgrade to Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro Rev.2 CPU Cooler If needed)
    ASUS P8Z77-V LX With NEW Z77 Chipset OR GIGABYTE Z77-D3H With NEW Z77 Chipset
    8GB DDR3 1600Mhz - PATRIOT VIPER V3 RED Performance/Gaming RAM
    2TB (2000GB) SATA2 - 7200 RPM & 32MB Cache
    AMD Radeon HD 6870 1GB OR nVIDIA GeForce GTX560 1GB

    OR

    AMD Bulldozer FX-8120 @ 3.1Ghz (8 Core)
    ASUS M5A78L-M/USB3
    PATRIOT VIPER RED V3 16GB 1600Mhz
    SEAGATE 2TB SATA3, 6Gb/s
    750W PSU - CIT Gold & 12CM Fan
    Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro Rev.2 CPU Cooler
    AMD Radeon HD 6870 1GB OR nVIDIA GeForce GTX560 1GB

    And then... are there any price up/downgrades that would benefit me? I'm considering the 7850, only £30 more
    I'd rather not repeat myself a third time...

    The first one by a long shot.

    Where are you seeing these builds though? They are full of old hardware and we could suggest better ones with newer hardware if you gave us your budget. Would you also be interested in learning how to build computers? It's another way to save a healthy portion of money.

    Right so at the moment, its a competition between these two
    I wouldn't get the FX-8120 as it has some of the weakest individual cores
    I would most definitely rather get a FX-6300
    i5-2500k/3570K > FX-6300
    So, first of all... Which PC out of these two?
    Nuff said. Don't consider the AMD system, period. I wouldn't get the 560, either.

    Go with the 6870 or 7850. Also, it may be worthwhile to consider the i5-3570K
