Hello there strangers!

Mind my English i have few questions/doubts.Im on tight budget (the less the beter) and i want something for the long run 2 years minimum.

Proc: i3 3220 - 115 Euro
Athlon II x4 750k - 92 Euro

Mobo:Asrock Z77 PRO3 - 89 Euro
Asrock FM2 FM2A85X EXTREME4 - 83 Euro

My question is which cpu is beter for gaming? The other parts i need to buy: hd 7850 Gpu (177 Euro), DDR3 8GB (2x4GB) Corsair, 1600Hz low profile (55 Euro),Corsair 500W CX Series 80+ Bronze ( 60 Euros).Other parts and OS i already have.

If i go with 750k i would need new cpu cooler and maybe more watts on PSU for OCing,that means budget going up.
And 750k doesnt have L3 cache,which i read is used in gaming.

All inputs,advices hell even flaming is very welcome :) 

Disscus.

Either way, the i3 with discrete GPU is better for gaming than A8 with discrete gpu, without GPU go for A8. From what I remember, you have to get to an A10 for better gaming vs the is 3220 (using discrete graphics).
