I know it's been answered already... but in case you didn't understand why You would say "...better for me," rather than, "...better for I," is because "me" is an object pronoun, and "I" is a subject pronoun. Regardless of whether or not the verb comes before or after the word in question.
Ex: "I am blue." and "Blue am I." <-- Both Subjects despite inverted format.
Ex: "You make me blue." <-- Me is the object of the verb. It could also be the object of a preposition, as in: "...better for me."
That's what I can recall...
