More about : building gaming rig shaun_shaun December 27, 2012 1:08:53 PM I d choose the 2nd option .. but I'd go with i5 3470 and gtx660 if I were you... eerazor December 27, 2012 1:34:15 PM I would have to agree, for gaming i3 is not really a good choice. Best option is an i5. GPU definately a 660, the 550ti is not worth it, not at that price and its performance is far below that of the 660.
