Assuming this is for gaming, I would go this route:

The Pentium will perform better in gaming when overclocked, and being the Haswell Refresh, you should be able to get a pretty decent overclock out of it. It will also perform better in normal every-day applications, like Office or web browsing. Paired with the 750 Ti, you should get High settings at 1080p pretty easy, and definitely better than any 'next-gen' console ;)

Also was able to get you a 1TB drive, and a MUCH higher quality power supply. The one paired with the Rosewill case is very poor, and definitely wouldn't want it running a 6300 + GPU. That motherboard also won't fit in that case.

Oh well definitely if it's for LoL you'll want Intel. You'll get noticeably better performance out of the Pentium build than the AMD build. LoL likes single-thread performance, so even though the Pentium is only a dual core, and the 6300 is a 6-core, the Pentium will give you better performance.

Edit: To add, this will definitely max out LoL at 1080p :)

They should be. But I don't recommend a case with PSU, generally the PSU is crappy in this case and plus, the PSU is the critical for the whole build's stability.

Here's my thought:

If over ur budget just put 4 gigs of RAM, if u use Win8 OS, 4GB shouldn't be an issue by now, if u don't install a lot of bloatware.
