Any of the three would be fine for gaming. You may not get the most FPS possible on any of them, but they should be acceptable. More FPS would require either a much more expensive video card or a Crossfire/SLI configuration (requiring another video card). Of the three the i7 is probably the best, but also the most expensive.

Don't pick SSD as a huge and main one! It should be runned under Windows - so the capacity is good of 164 GB, not more. Better handle with an additional 2 TB normal HDD as for storages.
Now, 8-Core CPU is a bit expensive, no? 4 or 6-Core will made the job as well.
Your specified graphics are your favorite and are okay, I should guess. It's a matter of choice for everyone.
.....I also would advise to pick 2 DVD-RWs, for a disk-to-disk copies.
.....a Middle-Tower ATX or a Full-Tower ATX, 650W PSU - and it's a dream not a computer! Luck!

Hi and welcome to BC- So I well tell you right off the bat that I am a Intel ' fanboy ' When it comes to speed when comparing to an AMD equal ... you can't beat intel.
So.. if your looking for an AMD build with all these leet cores on it keep in mind that MOST software out there and games will only recognize a MAXIMUM of 4 cores. So what will those other 4 cores you got be doing. thats right... nothing have a look at this thread.
Nuff said. At this time. There simply are not many applications that support more than 6 cores let alone 8.

I have to disagree with rhino1366 on a number of things.
You're talking a hybrid drive so the recommendation for a small SSD doesn't apply, even if it did I recommend going with as large an SSD as you can. I'm on my third SSD, due to upgrading for size. My current drive is 256GB and I wouldn't recommend going anything smaller unless you're an advanced user as space will quickly become an issue.
As the others have said the number of cores is over kill, depending on what you're doing with the machine. I've got a six core Intel CPU which shows up as 12 cores in Windows, AMD CPUs don't do this. My machine will max out all 12 cores when encoding a DVD with Handbrake. My normal use is World of WarCraft on one screen, a web browser on another, and a movie on a third, while ripping a DVD. If you're just doing one thing at a time a four core AMD or dual core Intel CPU will be fine.
I haven't built a machine with two optical drives since last century. One optical drive is fine, unless you have a need to duplicate disks on a regular basis.
