Need an opinion on purchasing 1 of these 2 gaming compters.

I will be using the computer for video editing and maybe some animations and gaming. I will have it hooked up to 3 27" wide Monitors.(not 4k or gaming monitors) and maybe to a 4k Tv.

Need you Help on deciding on these 2 Gaming Computers. Never had a gaming computer just a regular home computer. What computer would be the best fit?

    Since your core usage will be video editing, the extra cores and threads of the 5820k along with the 1080 + 32gb RAM, should be beneficial for you.
    The 2nd configuration should be the way to go. It should be able to game equally good as the 1st one and will last you longer as well.
