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

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

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.

Edit: Heres a comparison of the CPUs http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/700?vs=677

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.
