As the title suggests, I'm quite in a limited budget here so i need some of your opinions (and possibly what i should do).
The question is, which one do i go with, a high end CPU partnered with a mid-GPU or the opposite:
im choosing between
i5-3470 and a HD 7950 or i5-3570K and a 7870 LE
each pair costs approx. the same, and i cant go with a 3570K + 7950, so which one is better for gaming and no(/small) overclockings. thanks!

I'd go for the i5 3570K/HD7870LE combination, there's headroom for overclocking the CPU (just add a decent cooler during the build) and the 7870LE is not that much slower than a 7950 (sob). The non K CPU's cannot be overclocked BTW.
