This build will give you decent performance (depending on your graphics card), will allow you to overclock, and will give you a great upgrade path.

This build has a better mobo, stronger processor (6 cores).

You can upgrade the RAM down the line, but 8 gigs works for now, and is still really good.

Definitely go for this build if you're fine with upgrading ram later.

Avoid the Asrock AB350 whatever boards like a plague. Those are timebombs waiting to happen. If you look for random hangs, reboots, crashes, you see those in the reviews on newegg, and on reddit. I had one of those, worked good for 3 months and then it started to go to hell. I replaced now with an Asus board (not saying the Asus board can not crap out later but... ) and it became immediately obvious that Asrock board was the source of the instability.
