Hi guys, can you please help me, wich one is the way to go?

options based on availability and budget...

GTX660 TI SC EVGA and a core 13 2120 or
GTX560 TI DCII/2DI/1GD5 and a core i5 2310

Now I can't afford the core i5 and the 660TI together and I need to buy it asap.

Rest of the hardware
psu coolermaster 700W silentpro
ram ddr3 corsair dominator 8GB 1600
2 hard drives 250GB and 1TB
MoBo gigabyte ga-z77x-ud3h
HS coolermaster V8
case coolermaster haf922
LED 24" benq playing games at 1920*1080

I sold my old phenom IIx4 955, MoBo gigabyte gma880-ud2h and a HD 6870, so I hope i can get better perfomance with this upgrade.
As I said I use the computer for office work, internet and play games like borderlands 1 and hopefully 2, batman AA and AC, assassins creed, CoD, L4D 1,2 and FIFA
Thanks in advance for your comments..

get a Pentium G850 with the GTX660ti, the G850 WILL bottleneck the GTX660ti but you get a i5 3570k later when you can afford it.

Edit: can't you just shell out a little bit more cash to get a i5 3570k and a 7870 (the 7870 performs similar to the GTX660ti) or a 7950/GTX660ti?

You can save lots on your build an afford an i5 and the 660 ti

You need a 500 watt psu
If you are just gaming 2 x2 gig of RAM will be plenty
Since neither processor can overclock you may as well use an H77 or B75 motherboard
the cpu cooler is a waste when a $34 Hyper 212 will easily handle your needs

and there are plenty of cheaper cases that will work too

these are kind of odd combos in my opinon, but i would go with the what idroid said and just get the 3570k when you have money, or just wait till you have the money

LoL... it realy looks kinda crapy, the haf 922, coolermaster 700 silent pro and the V8 are leftovers from my last rig, I'm looking to buy cpu, gpu and Motherboard only,
here in Mexico the GTX 660 Ti cost 388 us (evga sc version) and the 3570k is 290ish usd, and to spice tings a bit more my second baby is arriving Oct 15. but I guess I'll
wait to get the 3570K.

It's been about 15 days without gamming thats the real hurry, i guess i can wait another 15 days to afford the 3570K.

Thanks all for the advice.

Adios
