I am building a gaming rig but because of my limited budget I have two choices:
1.Core i5 3570 ivy bridge and GeForce gtx 550 ti or 2.Core i3 3220 ivy bridge with Geforce gtx 660(non ti)
So which one of this two options should I choose?

I d choose the 2nd option ..
but I'd go with i5 3470 and gtx660 if I were you...
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.
