Im on a budget build here and my first time.

Im thinking of building a sandy bridge computer and plans of upgrading in the future. i'd like to have a gaming computer when the time comes i want to upgrade but since this is my first build I want it to be good atleast. Do i go for an i3 and just buy an h61 chipset board? or go g550 and have z68 chipset board?

The processor matters more in a gaming computer than the motherboard.

Mid-range motherboard, 8GB+ ram and then split the remaining budget between cpu and gpu for a balanced system.
