The first comp is horrible because of the 650, 2nd comp looks decent I guess

Second one is way better for gaming. First one would be better for a video rendering station.

This. The first computer has an expensive CPU and tons of memory, but has an entry level gaming card. The second computer has weaker cpu and less memory, but a MUCH better graphics card. The CPU and memory being less will have a very small effect on gaming, the much better card will make it pull WAY ahead.

2nd one is the better of the two. How much are they charging? Please don't say anything over $1200...

Rendering stations do better in quantity, then quality for what you can afford...

The i5 and 760 are good choices for budget builds, so is the 7970 if that's what you prefer.

It's basically something that can run high-very high with little trouble, ultra settings is just a for show and if you can afford the budget for such builds.
'The Intel i7-3770 if you're rich, the i5 2500K, i53570 or i53570k if you're doing okay, the AMD A10-5800K or i3 if you're just about hanging in there.'

2nd build is more reasonable. The first one's PSU is the scariest part... Default 500W lol. | |

Do yourself a favor and research how to build your own PC. It's far cheaper and you get everything you want.
The 2nd PC is better, but you're still better off ordering parts off and doing it yourself. It's actually really easy to put one together.
