CPU bottleneck is guaranteed.Also it is recommended to change your PSU to some well known brands like xfx,corsair,thermaltake etc.

Upgrading the mobo/psu/cpu would be required I guess? My budget for that would be about $400.

Including Gfx??

No, the gfx would be extra.

I think this would be best:
Intel core i5 2300.($180)
H67 chipset($60-100)
xfx core edition 550($70)
4GB -8GB Ram($30-50 )

I don't really need the case but I think I'll go with the i5 2500k.

Thanks all.

Dont feel bad spending 20 - 25% of your budget on the Power Supply.

Ask yourself if you would want to be driving around in a Dodge Viper if it had a Dodge Neon engine in it.

The thing delivering the power is just as important as what you power with it.
