I can Either go

i3 3220 + GTX 650 ti or i5 3330 + 7770

Im Stuck at this little problem, I really dont know what will give the best performance.

For gaming? The i3 + 650ti will be slightly better. Neither will really get you more than medium settings in new games at 1080p.

I personally would go with the i5 and a 7750 (for now.)

The reasoning behind this is because the i5 is going to be a viable chip for much, MUCH longer than the i3 is, due to being a capable quad core. That means that you can save up and upgrade your graphics card, say, when the 8000 series comes out.

It's a lot easier to do that then to upgrade both your graphics card AND your processor, because an i3 wouldn't do anything but bottleneck way nicer cards anyways.
