I am looking to build a gaming PC, (I have everything else picked out except the CPU) but I am kinda at a stalemate when it comes to what CPU to get. I have looked at i3s, i5s, Athlon II x3s and x4s and even Phenom IIs. And I have narrowed it down to either an i3 or Athlon II x4. I want to stay under $125 for the CPU.
I am looking for good OC potential and the best performance for playing two games in perticular, Crysis and Bad Company 2.
I already plan to get 4GB of G-skill DDR3 1333 and an XFX HD 5770 or 5830. So with the combo of those components, which CPU would be best for me.
