I would go for the i5 4440 + 660 Ti, because the processor is faster and you could upgrade the GPU later and have a better system. The 660 ti is plenty capable of playing modern games at medium-high settings.

Why not the i3 and a 770? The 670 is stupidly priced right now. For gaming, the i3 is great.

If you don't want to upgrade the 670 is much better. I really don't see much point in getting an i5 anyways... i'd honestly suggest the i3 over the i5.

i3 + 770 = all games Ultra/Maxed with AA at 1080p, or i5 + 660 Ti = games in High/Ultra, no AA.

Your call, but for a gaming computer, the i3 with a better GPU is always better.

What do you base this opinion on? For CPU intensive games the i5 is superior. The 660ti will be obsolete the same time the 670 is. I would recommend a 660 ti, a 760, or a 770 depending on budget, but I wouldn't recommend a 670 regardless.

Due to all the amount of people asking about the lag, I have made a video: http://www.youtube.com/v/0QcBcqY1Smo If you have followed everything in the video and still lag, it is the game. There is a reason why it is called a beta. There isn't... See full content

you do realize that 670 is literally almost the same card as the 760? and because the saved money from and i3 can go towards the gpu

In any situation for current games, the i3 + 770 will play better than an i5 + 660 Ti. And why would you ever recommend a 660 Ti when a 760 is cheaper and better? Further, the 670 is a better card than a 760 - not by much, but it is better.

660 ti is around 200$, 760 around 250$, 770 around 330$.

And I stand by my decision of the options given. Some countries the 770 is off the charts expensive and it may be out of the question. I don't argue the point that a 770 and i3 will be fastest, but that wasn't the question. The 770 is a 680 overclocked, and considerably faster than the other cards

The 660 ti +i5 is a better overall - you won't run into CPU related overclocks and have a MUCH better "future proof" scenario with the faster CPU you can just upgrade the GPU at a later date.

The 660 Ti is that price if you can find it. Most are more expensive than the 760s right now. And the 670s are the same price as the 770 right now, which is why I said i3 + 770.
