hello i have $850 to spend on a computer and i am confused.i have put 2 systems in pcpartpicker(an amd and an intel build) and i don't know which is better the intel build http://pcpartpicker.com/p/v9dR has an i3 and a better case,more hard drive space,and room to upgrade to an i5 but the amd build http://pcpartpicker.com/p/v9go just seams a bit better because the cpu is one of amd's best but the i3 is one of intel's lower class.please if you have any suggestions on anything i should change please tell me because i'm just... :pt1cable:  <-- like that

The GPU is really more important for gaming and the 660 is an excellent choice. But if it were me, I would go intel.
