For gaming the GPU is much more important than the CPU

I would get a Phenom II X4 955 + HD 5870. And a 550-650 watt PSU.

Take a look at the sticky HOW TO ASK FOR BUILD ADVICE and post back with some more info, like the OP said for gaming thats not a well rounded PC.

Also with a X58 mobo you would be better off with 3x2 gigs of ram for 6
