  1. If you are focusing on gaming, the CPU on PC2 would be your better choice.
    If you plan on doing lots of multi-tasking, the CPU on PC1 would work out better.

  2. Both GPU are about on same level. And both are good choice for 1080p, but a bit low for 1440p monitor. While 8400 is better then R5 1600X, in fact with those cards on 1080p monitor you would see almost no difference.
    One more thing - both builds would be much better with 2666 MHz or faster RAM.

    Uhm, no. About the only game that the 1600x beats the 8400 is Civilization VI - a midrange GPU will respond just as well to the 8400 as a high end GTX 1080. Otherwise, at 1080p resolution, the 8400 dominates the 1600x. And in some games like Battlefield 1, Hitman, Project Cars, and GTA V, it's a very strong domination (strong being 20%+ faster FPS). However, when you move up to 1440p and beyond, that domination gap closes somewhat - but the 8400 is still faster at that resolution. You can read Tom's review of the 8400 and see 1080p benchmarks here:

    You can see a more extensive review here starting on page 14 in games at several resolutions including 1440p (scroll down for page 17 for other games). This is the minimum FPS performance measurement of the CPU which is most crucial to ensuring no stuttering during heavy scenery gameplay as minimum FPS may dip below the frequency of the monitor:
