Hello everyone

I am building a new computer, and I have and slight doubt.

My choices at the moment are:


APPROXIMATE PURCHASE DATE: this month
BUDGET RANGE: 500/700

SYSTEM USAGE FROM MOST TO LEAST IMPORTANT: surfing the internet, gaming

PARTS NOT REQUIRED: keyboard, mouse, speakers, OS, Monitor, HDD

PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: www.alternate.es, www.pixmania.es, www.pccomponentes.es
COUNTRY OF ORIGIN: Spain

PARTS PREFERENCES: I would like to use an AMD CPU with a 22" LCD and full tower case

OVERCLOCKING: Maybe
SLI OR CROSSFIRE: Maybe

MONITOR RESOLUTION: 1920x1080


PARTS I'VE ALREADY LOOKED Price

CASE: Xigmatek Asgard 30

CPU:
AMD Athlon II 440 X3 Triple Core 3.0Ghz AM3 Box 76
or
AMD Athlon II 620 X4 Quad Core 2.8GHz AM3 Box 82
or
AMD Phenom II 955 X4 Quad Core 3.2Ghz Black Ed 149


MOTHERBOARD: Gigabyte GA-MA785GT-UD3H Socket AM3 80

MEMORY:
G.Skill Ripjaws PC3-12800 DDR3 1600 4GB 2x2GB CL9 103

GPU:
Sapphire Radeon HD 5770 Vapor-X 1GB OC Edition 147
or
Sapphire Radeon HD 5850 1GB GDDR5 243

SPU:
NOX Urano II 530W 43
or
NOX Urano II 630W 51

DVD-RECORDER:LG DVD SATA 22X 25.89

The main doubt here, is to spend 100 extra eur on the 5850 (and buy a 6core processor in the future) OR on the 955 Phenom II (and buying a better GPU in the future).
