Closed CPU GPU Combo Tags: Graphics Cards GPUs CPUs Intel i5 Graphics Last response: November 8, 2012 7:35 PM in Graphics & Displays Share dmd4ever November 8, 2012 4:39:31 PM hi, i3 3220 + GTX 660 vs. i5 3470 + hd7850. ive been thinking about it quite extensively and i know that it will be harder to upgrade a cpu than a gpu down the line but in my country the i5 is 115$ more than the i3 so the question is will i see a big difference in games for that investments? thank you!!!

Anonymous a c 117 U Graphics card a b à CPUs November 8, 2012 4:57:05 PM what games do you look to play and what resolution? i'd hate to tell you to not get the 660 but if you are playing more cpu dependent games the i5 would be beneficial (such as BF3 multi player), but by no means is the i3 a slouch.
