Buying new hardware

I will soon buy new components for my computer. Currently i have:

Core 2 duo E8200
4Gig of RAM
Gigabyte ep35c-ds3r motherboard
Radeon 6850 1GB
650W chieftec PSU

And i will swap RAM,CPU and MB.

Which components should i buy for about 300-350€ ?

I mainly use my computer for gaming and i would like to play upcoming games like: Max payne 3, Mass effect 3, Diablo 3, . . .

I don't know which cpu to buy (i3, i5 or Phenom II X6 T1055 for example?)

Please help me taking this hard choice and compiling my new rig.

Many thanks, M16si

  1. if you plan of using the same gfx card, either cpu brand will do you just fine. i would go with the less cost route. even a phenom 2 x4 and that card would be a solid mix.
  2. Could you paste some links or specific models... im really confused with all the models put out in the market today
