You can do either.
Remember though, that vimrc si not only for Console Vim but also for
gvim (which performs the whole "ordinary" startup described under ":help
startup", adding at step 8 the GUI startup described under ":help gui-init".
Also, it is not :if("gui_running") [which will always return FALSE, even
in gvim, since it means: if there is a nonzero number at the start of
the string 'gui_running'], but :if has("gui_running") — see
:help feature-list " and scroll down until gui_running

The details are up to the individual user.
This said, I recommend (but it is just my opinion) to source the
vimrc_example.vim from your vimrc and add additional to that any desired
settings (including, if desired, overrides to undo things that the
example vimrc does that you don't want), mostly after that line but some
might have to go before it. I also recommend to comment every script
heavily (Vim comments start with a double quotation mark and extend to
the end of the line, but they cannot be used after some commands which
regard the quote as part of their arguments).
Example of a "vimrc stub" to be further customized by its user:
" Vim configuration script
" force English messages
" this must come before setting up menus
" remove this whole nested :if if not desired
if has("multi_lang") " otherwise there is no :language command
if has("unix") " only POSIX OSes know about the C locale
language messages C
else " assume Windows (Mac OS 9 is long obsolete)
language messages en
" source the example vimrc from $VIMRUNTIME
" undo filetype-specific indent set by the example vimrc
filetype indent off " comment this line out if you want FT indents
" additional user settings come here
