Basically, one has a GTX 970 but I will need to buy new hardware if I want to upgrade anything (CPU Cooler for OC, Motherboard for SLI, PSU for wattage) and the other has a good PSU, really good motherboard, good enough CPU cooler but a GTX 960. There is a big jump between 960 and 970 and I'm going to be playing demanding games like Rainbow Six: Siege, The Division, AC Syndicate, at 1080p and want to achieve at least 60 fps on high-ultra settings, but I also want to be able to upgrade this PC some years later.






What would you choose?
 
1) a good psu don't need to be expensive but is highly recommended for high end gaming http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/forum/id-2547993/psu-tier-list.html
-seasonic s12ii 520 80+broneze
-xfx ts
2) the cases are really expensive but if you like it go for it (check bitfenix neos)
3) I would go for the fpst build with these changes
motherboard -> msi h170 gaming m3 theres a cash back promo on it so its not much more expensive but better.
psu-> seasonic s12ii 80+bronze
case-> bitfenix neos back

for the rest greta build mate :) don't forget your os
