So what do u guys recommend i7-3770k with radeon HD 7850, or i5-3570k with 7950 ?? am getting a 1080p monitor and i dunno what will be better ( kinda noob at this sorry )

the i7 seems like shinning in my eye, but some people said the the 7950 is better than the 7850, does it worth preferring the i5 over the i7 ??

it will be used mostly for gaming, and daily use stuff......

With no doubt get the i5-3570k and the HD 7950, you really dun need an i7 for gaming, the i5-3570k is quad core and is enough at stock speed for gaming, and since you're buying the unlocked edition, you still have a lot of room to overclock and get a better performance out of it, the difference between the 7950 and 7850 is very reasonable to prefer the second set which is i5 and 7950 over the i7's one...

Happy gaming and merry Christmas :)

Those CPUs will handle anything so don't worry about bottle necks. The I7's use a quad core with hyper thread, which is useless in most games so the I5 3770 is the way to go. If you have a 1080p monitor than I would recommend a 2gig 7850 at the minimum. Since your CPU is so nice though, I would for sure pay for the 7950, it'll last you a long time. You could even step up to a 7970 if you have enough for it.

Indeed, I was using C++ express so I'm on my laptop, and the number pad is smaller.
