Default Computer Newbie Looking for Help

Good morning everyone. So im getting ready to build my first PC and get out of my old Gateway. After doing some reading and getting help from different sources i've come up with three different build options. I was hoping that you fine people would tell me which build looks the most promising and what if any changes you would make to said build. To be clear i'll be using this PC for some gaming (Battlefield3, Starcraft2, etc) as well as some light photo and video editing, and other basic home uses. I would like to thank you all ahead of time for any help you could provide. Below are the wishlists from Newegg

Intel Build:

AMD Build:

One with friends help:

Now you'll notice there's no HDD on these as I already have a 1TB WD HDD from my existing PC thats less than a year old that I will be using. Also already have the OS. Although I would like to add an SSD to run the OS from to speed things up but that will depend on how deep into my budget this build goes. Speaking of which the Budget will be under $600.

Thanks again everyone
