Im my search for a new computer I have come to choose between two specs.

1.
Seagate 500 GB
Corsair XMS3 2x2048MB DDR3
Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus
Intel Core i5 750
GIGABYTE GA-P55A-UD3R
5970 2GB DDR5
Master HAF 922
OCZ 500W-700W ModXStream Pro

Cost around $1700

2.
INTEL i7 860, 4x2.8ghz
1GB DDR5 HD5870
GIGABYTE P55, (INTEL P55)
GB DDR3 1333MHZ RAM, KINGSTON
500GB WD HDD,7200RPM
24x SATA DVD
750W Corsair
Coolermaster HAF 922

Cost around $1500

My monitor is 22" 1650x1050
Im mainly gonna use this for gaming like WoW, BF:BC2, Crysis Warhead.
Is it the $200 extra, worth going for the HD 4970 or would it be useless, unless I get a bigger monitor?
I also tend to see the HD 4970 better, as it will last longer, whereas the HD 5870 wont. I could rly need som help here. Ty

Option 1 & switch the PSU's with Option 2 and switch out the GPU to either the ATI HD 5850 or ATI HD 5870. These cards are plenty strong enough at your resolution of your monitor.
