I3 2100 + GTX 460/560 (not ti) vs i5 2400 + GTX 550ti

greetings! I know there's already a thread here that discusses i3 2100 + gtx 560ti vs i5 2500k + gtx 460...but i wanna know which one will be the best build for gaming on the budget...is it the i3 2100 + gtx 460/560 (non ti) or the i5 2400...will the i5 2400 + gtx 550ti be enough to play GTA IV at high settings? or will the i3 2100 + gtx 460/560 give a better performance? i'll be playing @ 720p. And how much difference will there be if i play @ 720p vs 1080p in terms of graphics. thank you so much for your response! btw, no newegg, tiger, etc for me 'cause i live in the philippines.

    its only £50 difference
  3. now I've been thinking of getting the i5 2400 then just hang on a bit 'til I saved enough for a gtx 460 :) thanks for your reply.
