Radeon 7950, 7970 or nvidia gtx 660ti?

Hello all, I'm torn at the moment. I've been given two sets of advice and they both seem good. I'd like your opinion please.

I have £500 worth of gift vouchers for a custom built pc.

Half of my advice givers have recommended I choose an i5 3570k 3.4ghz with an amd radeon 7970, however other people have suggested I choose an i7 3770k with an amd radeon 7950 or nvidia gtx 660ti. I can't decide between a lower cpu with a better gpu or vice versa...

I will be playing fps games and mmorpgs as well as after effects and photshop editing and rendering.

I can't afford the i7 with the 7970, just so you know.

Thanks.

  1. For gaming, the i7-3770K offers no benefit over the i5-3570K. The i5-3570K will be more than enough. However, since you'll be doing editing and rendering, it'll come in handy. Get the 3770K and the GTX660ti
