Looking at building a new pc wiith a budget of around £2-300 (with a preference for the lower end of that) for the main components (CPU, MOBO, RAM)
and then around £150 for a GPU.
already have all the other component and peripherals from my current PC so can upgrade them as and when.
The PC would be used mainly for gaming and i tend to multitask quite a lot too... and hopefully last me a good few years!
My main question is which CPU to get, for around the £100 mark im torn between the i3-2120 and the AMD P2 960t due to the potential 6 cores, overclocking ability and new games ability to utilise the extra cores! i have considered the i5 2xxx which i know blow everything else out the water but i think if i get a better GPU and MOBO with the money saved the gaming performance and upgrade potential will be greater
sooooo basically.... any advice

Ok my advice
go with intel.
Intel pentum g 850 Asrock h61 cafe corsair 2x 4 gb 1600 mhz ddr3 sapphire hd 7850 ghz ddition
and 500w psu
cheers for the advice, with that mobo the upgrade potential is quite limited is it not ?
if i were to go for the i5 2500k what mobo would people suggest ?
well right now i want a rig that can play most games on high settings and be able to do so for a few years (will happily upgrade gpu and cpu to do this).
