Skyrim
Farcry 3
Sleeping Dogs

Dragon Age 1 &2


and similar titles as released.

GPU is more important with games. The 7870 will give you better frame rates.

With what little info you gave get the i5 3570k as its one of the best gaming cpu's out there you can get. On sale for $215 right now. Obviously a 7870 would be better but if you dont have the money a 7850 would still do a good job with high settings on those games.

7870 + 3450 FTW.
But you should consider 3570k in case you are getting z77 chipsets.
