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.

i3 + gtx660, the i3 is a great gaming CPU and you won't have any bottleneck issues.

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.
