Is my PC better than yours?

No, an i5 wasn't a bad choice, buying a computer to brag on the internet was.
Scientifically proven.

i5 is the mid level choice. I'm personally getting a Broadwell i7 when it comes out to complete my rig upgrades

I see a lot of you have i7's

It's not a bad choice, but at the same time it's not the best choice you could have taken.

Yours is slightly better at the minute, but not by very much. I'm about to buy a second GPU to crossfire with, which put mine drastically over yours. I've got a 3770k and 7970 Ghz, which is the same as a 280x, so 280x's will beat out a 290x by a large amount

Yours isn't bad but nothing worth bragging about. You will have no problems gaming though. If you wanted a PC to brag about you would have to drop a bit more for a better cooler, maybe a custom loop, as well as an i7. Also get a 780ti or better.
