Opinions on these two PCs?

I've narrowed down my search for a new (primarily gaming) PC to just these two, and I'm kinda torn at the moment. They're both the same price ($1499 AUD), with the only real difference being the HDD size. However the first PC's Phanteks Enthoo case seems a much more appealing build than the Nanoxia. I'm probably over-thinking the obvious, but I thought I'd at least get a second opinion before spending that much money. The two PCs are:

For the record: I'm personally not interested in building my own PC, nor do I know anyone who could help me if I wanted to anyway, so I'm happy enough buying pre-built for now! But I would really appreciate some feedback here.

Some like EVGA graphics card more but that's relative.
Both seems fine, maybe the + 1 TB is nice, if you fill up your HDDs fast.
Also 2x4 Gb Ram kit is advised.
