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.

the 7870 performance is actually closer to the 660 ti, so id go for one of those
