Honestly i dun think u even need a 955BE seeing u have little to nil CPU intensive tasks outside games so why not

AthlonII X3 440
870/880G mobo with native SATA 6GB/s and USB 3.0
and ya that HD 5750 is a good call but for green camp you'd be looking at GTS 250 not 9800GTX+ : a refresh/rebrand but a wee bit more frames and considerably less power consuming
