It depends on what you want to use your system for.

Speed with what? Both will perform similarly with normal usage like office work, Flash gaming, and browsing. For the slight bump in graphics performance, I would go for build 1 as it has a dedicated GPU, even though it is very low end. Have you considered one of the AMD APU builds using something like the A10 CPU? It has a good GPU built into it.

Agreed, build one if you want to occasionally game a little bit. Both builds will theoretically perform well and satisfy your basic computer needs. I haven't used and read reviews on Novatech products, but if I were you I'd stick to those reliable manufacturer.. You might want to try Gigabyte or ASUS or MSI boards as they have almost the same price in Newegg which I assume they should also be around the same price in pounds.. A downside in build 1 is if the motherboard is not on the latest BIOS which will support Steamroller processors, you might need to update the BIOS first before you can get the FX-6300 running on it.. But anyways Build 1 gives you an option to upgrade to FX-8 cores in the future and overclocking options..
