my 5x5 routine pullups or cable rows?

Hi guys after I finished my gvt I will be going back to 5x5 my workout A at the mo is looking like this 
SQUATS 5X5
INCLINE BENCH 5X5
CABLE ROWS 5X5 or PULLUPS 5X5 
Barbell bicep and weighted dips would u higher the reps for these smaller muscles or keep it at 5?
just wondering what you would prefer or if you have a different workout all together I'ed like to hear it I have a power rack with weight stack cable attachment and few dumbbells and plenty of weights,

    I'd do weighted pullups, bent over rows, or t-bar rows as a preference to cable rows
    Bit confused that you're grouping curls with weighted dips.  Weighted dips are a heavy compound exercise.  Do you mean bench dips?
     
    Anyway I'd do my accessory/isolation stuff work in the 6-10 rep range.  But that's just me

    I did mean tricep dips just want to do few arm exercises in my 5x5 training because I've done strength training on and off for 10 years and my arms are seriously lagging compared to the rest of me. my stats where this at my best 
    Squat 160kg 5x5
    Barbel row 87kg 5x5 
    incline Bench 110kg 5x5
    Shoulder press 87.5kg 5x5
    Deadlift 192.5kg 2x5
    Never done 1rep Max 
    But still had small arms so feel like I need to add some more exercises on  arms superset few tri and bi exercises or something in there but not sure what

    Are you totally committed to the strength training?  Maybe you should switch to a bodybuilding routine for a while if your arm size is bothering you.

    I luv strength training i get bored bodybuilding with the higher reps much prefer lower reps and heavy,  I started my 5x5 program last night but ill add few arm exercises wiv higher reps and maybe slow down the movement just to bring my arms up to size I've bin told wen I train arms its like I'm rushing I need to slow down like 2up2down and really focus on feeling the  squeeze and contraction of the exercise so ill try that
