Hey guys, I need help choosing over this two systems that I want to build. (This is my first build)

Here they are:

CPU: Intel Core i5-3570K Ivy Bridge 3.4GHz (3.8GHz Turbo) LGA 1155 77W Quad-Core Desktop Processor
GPU: HIS IceQ Turbo H785QT2G2M Radeon HD 7850 2GB 256-bit GDDR5
MOBO: ASRock H61M-DGS LGA 1155 Intel H61 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
RAM: Kingston HyperX Blu Red Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333
HDD: WD Blue 500GB 7200 RPM SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive - OEM
DVD: Asus DRW SATA 24x DvD Burner
PSU: CORSAIR Builder Series CX600 600W ATX12V v2.3 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified.

$710 - Includes shipping

I could upgrade my GPU in about 6 months no problem, please tell me which one will do better gaming or which one would be better for me to choose, I want to play current games like BF3, Far Cry 3, Skyrim and such.

Also, would the 1gb version of this card make any diference playing at 1080p on a 32 inch screen over the 2gb version? (Im on a budget so if it is not worth it please tell me).

I'll be waiting for your answers (:

Id go with a cheaper cpu and a better gpu. You cant even overclock with your motherboard so theres no reason to get the 3570k. So maybe get the 3350p instead. In fact you cant even use that cpu on that motherboard without a bios update. You might have to get a new one.

As for the vram, some games use more than 1gb so i think its worth it to get a 2gb card. A 7870 perhaps? The 2gb version of 7850 isnt worth it imo.

Ok, lets say I go with that CPU, should I take the 7870 2gb Sapphire or the HIS one?
