FX-8320 + HD 7790 @ i5-3470 + HD 7790

Which one is better for gaming ?? I heard Fx is suitable for gaming and FX is amd product so it will run smooth with AMD Graphics Card , intel should be match with GTX Series graphics card... is that true ?

No, that is not true. Amd or intel cpus will both work with either nvidia or amd gpus. There really isn't a performance difference with either.

thats not strictly true nvidia cards have a slightly higher overhead on intel based systems. its normally about 1-3% more cpu usage than the equivalent amd card so its ever so slightly more efficient to run an amd gfx card with an intel cpu.

AMD graphics cards work perfectly well with either Amd or Intel cpu's.

Unless your games are multi core enabled, and can use more than 4 cores,(most can use only 2-3 cores) the i5-3470 option will likely be better.
