  1. Do you want 4 full cores or 2 cores with 4 threads? Core i5 6xx processors I think are too expensive. Get the Core i3 540 and put the rest of your money into the motherboard and Graphics card.
  2. Get the i3 540 w/ gigabyte gap55 ud3 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128425
    The processor can overclock massively & becomes a potent gaming cpu, & will be more than enough to handle any pc game for the next 2 years.
