Deciding between these two systems

Hey guys im building my 2nd system for gaming:

according to my budget i can go with these 2 systems(Which i'll build myself) :

Core i5 3550
Gigabyte GA-B75M-D3H
8GB DDR3 1600MHz Ram(Ripjaws or Vengeance)
Corsair GS600 PSU
Asus GTX 670 DC2 2GB DDR5


Core i5 3570K (Which i'll OC upto 4.4 Ghz with hyper 212)
Asus P8Z77-M
8GB DDR3 1600MHz Ram(Ripjaws or Vengeance)
Corsair GS600 PSU
MSI Power Edition R7850 2GB DDR5

For the 1st 3 months i'll be gaming at 1600x900, after that on my birthday ill get a 1080p display

So guys which is better? slow proccy wid fast gfx or fast proccy with slow gfx? i know the 7850 aint slow but im comparing it with 670!

  1. Best answer
    GTX 670 is faster than 7850, the only radeon card that can top it up is 7970 or the GHz Edition. The one that is none-reference. If your on gaming, the i5 3550 is enough because of the quad core, if your an overclocker and you want better performance in rendering or editing, then an overclocked cpu is for you. I saw alot of review that compares GTX 680 with GTX 670 for a $100 less with 5% comparison, if you overclocked the 670, it will outperform the 680. So your best bet is Nvidia.
  2. Alright, but u sure that i5 3550 wont become obsolete in the future? i want my pc to be like running up strong for about 3 years
    I only do gaming wid my pc
  3. i5 3550 won't be easily obsoleted, because the games are just needing a maximum of 4 cores which is quad core. The one that becomes obsolete is the dual core. That be perfect, besides that 3550 is an Ivy Bridge and it's the newest chipset of Intel. So there won't be a problem.
  4. Alright, thanks! Do u expect the price of 670 to drop after 3 months?
  5. Yes, when maybe the 660 comes, if I helped please choose my answer as the best :)
  6. I personally would take the Asus 670GTX DC2T => the "TOP" version.

    It got amazing reviews everywhere, and worth the extra bucks.
    Actually I just bought it today.
