The second would give you a bit better performance, but not by say 30 fps or more or anything, if I were you, I'd just go with the six core and the GTX 650 and save some money. That will run most modern games on medium-high with good FPS.

500 MHz is a significant difference, so it having 2 more cores. It really comes down to budget, the second config might not be worth the extra money, I can't really decide that for you.
