BUT

the stock AMD cooler is loud.. budget for a silent cooler if that is the direction you want to go... STOCK the i5 system will be more... silent, and use less power.

Lastly, the seagate 500GB 7200.12 is a single platter and faster drive than the 640GB WD-BLACK.
If it's faster, would it be louder? I'm leaning towards the amd build, but still not sure about the X6 core. Most games these days only use 2 cores (may be incorrect).
