Custom PC Building Confusion

I am currently trying to build a basic/mid gaming PC and I have chosen the following

1.) Intel i3 3220 processor
2.) Intel DH77EB Motherboard
3.) Corsair Vengeance DDR3 4 GB (1 x 4 GB) PC RAM (CMZ4GX3M1A1600C9)

My confusion is that which graphics card I should chose of my PC. My choices are:

1.) Gainward NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650 Ti 1 GB GDDR5 Graphics Card
2.) Sapphire AMD/ATI HD 7770 OC Edition 1 GB GDDR5 Graphics Card

Is my CPU the bottleneck with these graphics card ?? If yes then which CPU/Graphics Card I should opt for in same budget?

I am hoping to make a PC which will work good for 6 years.

    The 650Ti has a lead over the 7770, typically anywhere between 6-10% depending on the resolution. Go for the 650Ti, though really a fairer comparison would be between the 650ti and 7790.
