    Which is better?

    Alright, so I've had my eye on a few PC lists, and I'm not sure which would be good as I'm not the best with parts.
    My budget is right around $1000, give or take $50ish.
    I'd like to play games like GTA V, CSGO, Skyrim, Rust, PayDay 2, etc... with med-high graphics at 1920x1080p resolution (if it's possible).

    I have 3 builds here. Please tell me which would be the better buy for what I want (I'd obviously like the cheaper, and tell me if I can make any improvements).

    EDIT: I can't seem to post links, so I'll make a spoiler with the info.
    Sorry for the mess, but like I said, I can't post links... Also, give or take $20-30ish dollars on the total for sales, etc.

    I do plan on overclocking eventually, but for the first few months or so I'll keep it at standard GHz. Just FYI :P

    Leave improvements/suggestions below! Thanks

    Why don't you use the ASUS MB for the nVidia build ?
    I suggest the nVidia build because I have few friends who returned several new R9 cards, but maybe it's bad luck only...
