I3-3220 w/ gtx 660 or i5-3570K w/ gtx 650ti?

What combo would be better? saving a lot on the cpu and geting the better graphics card or Vice Versa?
I have heard that the i3 will not bottlekneck a gtx 670, but also that it will choke on high cpu games like gta 4 and arma.
Any help would be apreciated. thanks.

  6. The i3 with the 660 would be better.

    getting an i5 with a 7850 is a great option too and better in the long run. nvidia cards below the 660 isn't worth buying.
