Help to choose CPU and motherboard

Hello. I am thinking of upgrading my CPU with motherboard. I currently have P4 3.20ghz with Optiplex GX280.
I am looking for good gaming CPU with new motherboard for about $200-250.

I was thinking of:

AMD Phenom II 1090T

Have lots of other ideas, but not sure what to get. My graphic card is 9800GT.

Share you ideas, people! And thx for your help

  1. If you use one video card, spend more money on CPU than motherboard.

    CPU
    AMD Phenom II 1090T

    Motherboard
    ASUS M5A78L-M LX AMD Socket AM3+

    No USB3/SATA3, but if you don't need them why spend money on it.
  2. But I thought Intel is better then AMD. Will this CPU be enought for CODMW3 and BF3?
  3. My budget is about £200-£250 ($300-400)
