If you're overclocking, the 920 is known to overclock a lot better than the 930. If you're leaving them stock, I'd stay with the 930.

Is there a reason why you're going with 12GB of RAM? I'd go with a 6GB configuration, as you probably will never use nor come close to using 12GB of RAM, if you're a gamer/mainstream user.

Also, you can save some headaches going with a smaller SSD and an additional hard drive. If your budget allows for the large SSD and a good hard drive, then stick with it, that way you have an ample amount of space for programs used most regularly.
