Budget Gaming Builds: AMD or Intel?

Hey guys, I need some opinions before a final decision is made. I have two cheap builds in mind, one being AMD based and the other, Intel.

I would like to know which you guys think is better and why, also if you have suggestions I welcome those as well. A couple of notes:

  • EDIT: After looking into it, I believe this 300 watt SeaSonic is enough to power the entire system, including the 7770.
  • The budget cannot exceed $350.00 no matter what.

AMD Build

Intel Build

minimum power supply is always quoted at 500W for such video cards

didnt do any looking but can find them for around $25-30

also guess you already have the harddrive from an old computer.

Just from personal preference I would go with the AMD build.

Thats a little better for same price..That AsRock board has great reviews

And the above guy said, you need a much better power supple. 500W continuous, which means like 750W maximum. (maximum is usually advertised)
