    If no one answers in about 4 hours, just quote this post so I get an alert. There are typically a lot of people in this particular forum who are very helpful, though

    Unless you absolutely need a DVD drive, skimp out on that and save the money. If you can also get away with using an old keyboard mouse and monitor, do that, as you can budget more for the GPU. A 750 Ti is alright, but with the saved money from the above listed items, you could get a GPU that's a lot more powerful.

    Along these lines, even if you don't want to put more budget towards the GPU, you can now get a 1050ti for a similar price but measurably better performance

    I have the 750 ti, game like gta v runs well on full hd medium settings,(1/2 options high) at 55/60 fps.
    I agree with @TotalInsanity4 you could try to get 1050 ti, because 750 ti is not old but outdated imo.

    Do you have any good details on the i5 cpu? Saying 2.7Ghz its most likely the i5 6400, because ram is ddr4. Not a bad cpu, you could try to get i5 6500 slightly better.
    The i7 you said is 6700 i guess, its useless for gaming just to let you know. If you want this pc only for gaming, forget i7.

    With this said, I think you should see if you can get better cpu and gpu. My suggestion if you can get i5 6500 and nvidia 1050 ti

    Tell your builder to give you more information on the motherboard in the second build

    Also, what are these being used for, and how long into the future would you want to keep doing whatever it is they're built for?

    What about buying these components on amazon.com and mount the PC by yourself? It's not so hard as you can think and there are TONS of tutorials on youtube about assembling a pc and do a nice cable management.
    Here you a good build that you can have for about $ 750 (monitor and keyboard/mouse excluded).

    Power source: EVGA 600 B1, 80+ BRONZE 600W
    Motherboard: ASRock ATX DDR4 Motherboards H170 PRO4
    Hard drive: WD Blue 1TB SATA 6 Gb/s 7200 RPM 64MB Cache 3.5 Inch
    SSD: Samsung 750 EVO - 120GB
    RAM: Kingston HyperX FURY Black 8GB Kit (2x4GB) 2133MHz DDR4
    GPU: MSI GAMING Radeon RX 480 GDDR5 4GB
    CPU: Intel Boxed Core I5-6400 FC-LGA14C 2.70 Ghz
    Case: Corsair Carbide Series SPEC-01 Mid Tower

    I'd try to get a GPU with at least 3GB of VRAM and 4GB VRAM being optimal. 2GB VRAM won't be enough in the near future. As for CPU I will recommend getting an i5. Pretty much the sweet spot for gaming. Your GPU will probably bottleneck the CPU but it's worse if it's the other way around. Don't get an i7 for gaming, it's a waste of money and i7 desktop processors are basically for enthusiast or high power computing. You won't benefit from an i7. I will also recommend investing in a 80+ gold grade power supply. Not saying you need it but having a guaranteed longevity and protection is nice since they last a long time.

    If he wants order from there, I would change just the cpu from that build. Adding 20/30$ for i5 6500 or i5 6600 is worth, more frequency.

    In order to recommend components we need to make sure you dont waste your money on stuff you wont need
