As above.. purely down to budget constraints, do I buy the i5 Haswell 'k' with a Nvidia GTX 660 2GB, or the Ivy Bridge variant with the 660Ti.. I'm not planning to OC, and will be using 8Gb 1600hz RAM.

With a dedicated GPU you would be just fine with IB. There is really not much difference in performance between IB and Haswell.

++1 IB.
Rozzdog: a few names: Aria, CCL, Dabs, Novatech, Scan, Overclockers, Ebuyer, Pixmania.
Several of these guys have specials on the 6xx series, with a few sub £200 GTX670s' in the offing.

Thanks guys, for £200 the 760 seems like a no brainer based on all the rave reviews.. Gonna search around for the best deal as I really gotta stick to that budget! Glad I can save a few £££'s by getting a discounted Ivy Bridge.. That'll help!
