Which setup is better?

Hey guys! I was kinda confused as to where to post this since its both CPU and GPU.
Anyways, which one is better? (for gaming)
i3 2120 with a GTX560Ti or i5 2320 with GTX560
and the 2320 is the most I can afford so dont question :P
Ill be playing DOTA2, Skyrim and Saints Row 3. :)

More about which setup better
  1. Probably the i3\560ti.

    You'd be much better off to list you budget, system, resolution, and info so people can actually help. probably belongs in new build or something. There's a form there on how to properly ask for upgrade advice.
  2. The first one is better.But why bother with a GTX 560 Ti when you can get a HD 7850 for less money?

  3. Actually, my bro is quite active on the new build forum. I only need those parts, CPU and GPU. Budget wont be needed as Ive decided to use either two. :P Anyhow,
    Mobo: Intel H67
    PSU: Silverstone ST50F 500W
    RAM: 8GB G.Skill Ripjaws
    Resolution: 1366x768

    Its more expensive here in the PH :(
  5. Budget and country always help, as people may.find you a better deal
  6. Well more or less 15000 Php. As Ive said, I live in the philippines :). If you need a website, pcx.com.ph :)
  7. at 1366x768 u could probably get max settings from a 7770, and afford a better cpu

    Newegg doesnt ship to the PH, sadly. :(
  9. still it should be available anywhere you can buy current tech, I was really only suggesting a particular model for referencs, with that card max eye candy and good frame rates should be easy to achieve, and save you the equivalent amount of money

    In your opinion, would it really be better than the 560? I can buy an OCed 560 at the price of the MSI 7770.
  12. unless you are planning to buy a better monitor, that card will do just fine, it handles max settings more efficiently than the 560, and it can always be crossfired in the future and still not be any more expensive than a 560ti
  13. your right, weird priceing, the 560oc at that price is a better deal

    I do plan to buy a 1920x1080 monitor at christmas :D. So with that said, GTX560Ti will be the way to go?
