Hello everyone i want help for a new pc (the first one im gonna make) so i need your help. But i have one problems. I cannot buy the i5 2500k or the i7 2600k because in my country they are super expensive :cry: 

Approximate Purchase Date: This month, like a christmas present or something

Budget Range: 600$-650$

System Usage from Most to Least Important:for everything, but gaming is more important

Parts Not Required: i have 4 gb of ram 1333mhz , a HDD of 500gb and a 6670 hd radeon. Also i have a monitor (1366x768)

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: i don't think i will be able to buy outside my country. But if have a chance it will be amazon or newegg


Parts Preferences:AMD, its cheap here in venezuela, at least a quad core to be able to play BF3

Overclocking: Yes

SLI or Crossfire:i don't know if i will do it in the future

Additional Comments:Sorry for asking about help in a country that is so screwed in the pc market, but i wanted to be in the pc gamer world so please dont hate me. :sweat:
