The second setup would be better for gaming because of the stronger 5850 video card.

Personally i would go with the i5, from what i understand, anything above 2 or 4 cores is not really needed for games and the higher graphics card is better for games will probably last you longer

Pick a quality power supply! its the heart of the build

scroll down to your desired power supply wattage and pick the top ones from the links within your price range

Good luck!
