I am getting a PC with a Overclocked ATI HD 7850. Which of the following processors should I buy with it?:

i3 2120
FX 4100
Phenom II 955

Also, are the processors too slow for the GPU? I am running a 1440x900 monitor soon to be upgraded to 1920x1080. This will run with 4gb ram (too low?).

will you use your pc for gaming? if yes i suggest you to get the Phenom II 955 and overclock it.also i suggest you to get 8 gb of ram since ram are so cheap

Yes for gaming. Is there noticible difference for the i3 and amd? I would like to upgrade in future and intel cpu are better futureproof?

most games use only 2 cores but some games need 4 cores(like bf3 in multiplayer). if you are play games that use only 2 cores then go with the i3 and when you feel that you need more cpu power you can upgrade to i5 2500k.
