Hello Tomshardware!

Ive been trying to upgrade my PC for the past 3 months, and i started with buying a HD 7770. My new GPU is currently being bottlenecked by my CPU so even in games like Bad company 2 I get average of 20fps at low settings. I am looking to upgrade my CPU, Ram, and Motherboard for now, later on I'll try to upgrade my old PSU and buy a new case because my current one is a dust collector and pretty sh**ty when it comes to cooling.

My current specs are:
HD 7770 Ghost Thermal Edition
2GB RAM DDR2
Powersonic 500w PSU
Intel Celeron E3400 @2.60GHz
And the motherboard: P5KPL-AM SE

I am looking for a quad core processor, because I want to use my PC for gaming. Also game developing in Unity 3D, Photoshop CS5 and Sony Vegas 11, which lags with my current system.

I've made this list, but I'm not sure whether a specific RAM compatible with a specific mobo:

What do you think about it?

Also, it would be great if somebody linked a budget but quality psu in this thread.

PS. My resolution is 1440x900.

Thanks, I'll probably pick up the 500w one.
