For a gaming build like that... what video card you already have?
Look at intel i5 750 build on p55 platform with 4gb ddr3 ram, will give you just as much performance as the more expensive 920 build

You don't need an i7 gor a gaming RIG with that budget.

As p1n3apqlexpr3ss said, You can get yourself a i5 rig or a Phenom II Rig will be great. :)

For gaming, Phenom II and i5 are more suited.

The real thing that matters is GPU power.

Remember, For gaming an awesome GPU + good CPU is better than a good GPU and awesome CPU :) 

Otherwise you can also look for i5 750 processor which can outperform a stock clock i7 once overclocked.
