If it's a case of choice a) or choice b), for gaming, all other things being equal, DEFINITELY choice b)

I would say the i3 and the 7850 for now and if you need more power in the future you can sell off the i3, grab a i5 or i7 and either crossfire the 7850 or sell it and get something better

PS: I am planning my own build now and have found that if you want to play BF3 (64 multi) then a i5 is oddles better than a i3
