Hey guys,

So, I'm making a new computer and would love to have some of y'alls opinion on something.
Due to budget constraints, I have to choose between an i7-3770K CPU with an AMD 7870 GPU OR a i5-3570K CPU with a AMD 7950 GPU.

I plan to put this combination in a Asus P8Z77-VPro Motherboard.

I will primarilly use the computer in a mix for both gaming and every day regular use.
I'm not a huge gamer, but I do like to play multiplayer FPS and RTS games (CS:GO, BF3, etc..).

so, which combination would you go with it?

The i5 + 7950. An i7 adds nothing to gaming.

For daily use and gaming the best will be i5-3570K CPU + AMD 7950, you'll get better gaming performance and with a cpu that will be meeting your needs.
The i7 is more for video editing, image editing, for gaming and normal use there is no difference between the two.
