Question Advice for new gpu

Here's what I have so far:
CPU: i3-3225 3.3Ghz intel hd 4000 graphics
Ram: 8GB G.skill 1600mhz
Motherboard: Asus p8b75
Boot Drive: 128 SSD Sandisk
Data Drives: 2x1TB HDD in a RAID 0 array
Case: Raidmax blackstorm w/500W PSU
1x200mm fan 3x120mm fan 1x80mm fan


GPU: None yet, looking into buying
ASUS HD7770 ghz 2GB
Newegg.com - ASUS HD7770-2GD5 Radeon HD 7770 GHz Edition 2GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
or evga gtx 550 Ti 2gb
Newegg.com - EVGA SSC 02G-P4-3653-KR GeForce GTX 650 Ti 2GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card

As I understand it the gtx is about 50% more powerful for about $30 more, is that right?
What do you all think? Will my processor be a bottleneck for either of these cards?

One more thing, my limit is $150-175 if you guys have any other ideas for cards that would perform better. I would prefer newer to older models so that in a year or so I can still pick up another to do SLI/Crossfire.
