17-3770 vs FX-8350

Hello everybody!

A friend of mine will buy a new pc. He needs a VERY responsive system, for multitasking, and LR4 editing. He has a 21:9 lg monitor, so it often happens, that he opens: chrome, lr, iTunes  after effects. He is not a gamer, he plays games once a week(bf3 on high, minecraft).He is thinking of these two setups.

1.                                                                      2.

Asus P8B75-m                                                     Asus M5A97 LE R2.0

I7-3770 (not the K, 'cause he doesn't overclocks)    FX-8350

4x2gb kingston hyperx 1600mhz                            4x2gb kingston hyperx 1600mhz

1st question: Which one do you prefer?

2nd question: Do you have a better suggestion for the money ($700)
