The 2300 is sandy bridge 32nmwhich has been superseded by ivy bridge 22nm, likely the i5-3330. All three graphics cards are comparable in gaming capability. I would pick the 7750 based on the less restrictive power requirements.

For the CPU, get the i5-2300 or again, step it up one tier and get the i5-2400. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
