AMD: Pheonm 2 965, Phenom 2 960t, Phenom 2 980, Phenom 2 X6 1090t, Phenom 2 1100t. All phenom 2's are good.

Intel: i5 2500k, i5 2550k, i7 2600k, i5 2400. Any intel CPU is good pretty much.

I have an i7 2700k, and my daughter's PC has an i5 2400. For gaming, there is absolutely no discernable difference between the two. The i5 2400 is a crazy fast chip and more than enough for gaming in my opinion, as well as being good value. The one argument against it is that the i5 2500k is not all that much more expensive.

Well, the best gaming CPU is of course the i7-3960X, but it's not really worth its price though.

I like the G. Skill RipJaw series DDR 3 1600 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... . The heatspreaders are low enough so they don't cause problems with most of the 3rd party HSF (heatsink/fan) like the Cooler Master hyper 212+. The 212+ is a really nice cooler at a nice low price that will work well with the Intel® Core™ i5-2500K.

2500K is the best for the money. A 2600k is better and the Intel Core i7-3930K is best, but of course much more expensive. Well you could say i7-3960X is best but that's only if money is no object, but for those of us who aren't rich well.......

Actually the 2500k outperforms the 2600k and 2700k in all gaming situations. It's been tested and proven here's the link:

:heink: 

Looks like the 2500k runs CPU intensive games slightly better than the 2600k but the 2600k runs more graphically demanding games better from those comparisons. I don't see the 2700k tested there...
