I went with an i5 because the only difference between it and an i7 is hyperthreading... meaning there's NO difference between the processor's performance for gaming. (Hyperthreading can actually mess up some games quite a bit.)

I gave you a 670 which is plenty to max out basically any game out there. If you want Radeon, go for it... just know that the 6000 series hogs power and is old tech - you'd be better off with a single 7970 GHz, overclocked.
