Help with build

Hey everyone.

Ok, I am looking to build a gaming rig but I don't want to spend too much.
I am not a hardcore gamer but I do like good graphics.
I am looking at these builds.

I3 build:
•I3 2120
•corsair 1600mhz 4GB RAM
•HD 7770 sapphire oc edition
•XFX 550w pro 80+
•B75 mobo

Phenom build:
•phenom ii x4 965 black edition
•good mobo
•4gb corsair 1333 mhz ram
•hd 7770 sapphire oc edition
•xfx 550w pro 80+

Which one will be better ? The i3 is cheaper than the phenom build
