With or without

Is a small change, but can't decide..First pic is with panels, and second without.
I'd like some help deciding >.<

Sorry about the image quality, was too big so had to use Image Shack~

It's your UI, so, most definitely go with the way you prefer.

If you like the panels, go with them. If you don't like the panels then don't use them.

I must say, though, that in my experience it occasionally depends on what's going on in the world (what kind of environment your character is in). That makes a big difference about what looks good and what doesn't. Usually (again, in my experience) using panels makes it more difficult to "loose" your UI elements in a difficult situation.

Just my opinion (and probably one of my better "non-answer" answers).
Ahhhh, the vagueries of the aging mind. Wait.... What was I saying?

I'd say without, with those particular panels. Having essentially three lines (black, gray, black) between all the bars and buttons adds a ton of visual clutter. Adding a simple panel around the whole object (the whole unit frame, or the whole action bar) instead of panels around every single part of the object (each status bar, or each button) would look much better, and still provide a clear distinction between the game world and the UI.
