I know the i5. Proc n mobo will beat the fx combo hands down, but here's my requirements:
''I'll be using 4 GB DDR3 RAM 1600kHz for both builds, 1 tb hdd, a cooler master low/mini tower and a 450 W PSU (as of now, can be altered if the rig demands), AND ON A BUDGET.
1.)a little tight on budget so if I go for i5 combo then would be upgrading gpu after 4-5 months, undecided though which one
2.) if I get the fx build then buying a gpu right away probably sapphire HD 7770
3.) I'm a casual gamer, hope to run fifa 14 and probably it's upcoming 2-3 versions in future, apart from fifa, little of batman, assassins creed 3,4, black flag etc at MED. settings
4.) hardly a chance that I'll upgrade the rig in future

I'd say get the i5, it will perform much better overall, once you get a gpu of course. You could even go with an h81 board to save some more money, since you won't be upgrading much then PCI 3.0 isn't really a factor. Try for 8GB of ram if you can however.
