  1. You can go with either CPU but i3 got a nice upgrade path
    Atleast 4GB better 8GB Ram
    and HD7770 or GTX650ti for GFx Card
    PSU needs to be atleast a CX430 or same class

    is there any chance i can get any i5 by getting a hd 7750
  3. if you planning to game GPU is more important than cpu

    so i3 + 7770 would be better than i5 + 7750

    don't you think fx 4300 being a quad core will be better for games to be released in future
  5. Yes a quad core certainly is more promising. As I have said before, you can actually go with either CPUs i3 3220 or FX4300 but for gaming purpose keep the Graphics Card as advised or better as this will be required more than the CPU.

    Yes why not. You can pair Fx 4300 with a 7770 No problem

    or even 7850 as well (Some one already linked to few sample. :) no problem as long you got a good 400+ watt power supply ofcourse.
