I would go for the fx 4170 then the i5, gaming performance is the difference of a few frames, and the cpu is great overall, for your gpu, i would get maybe a 6870, awesome game performance, just google the benchmarks, other than that it looks alright, don't forget to change your motherboard if you are going with AMD

save yourself $30 by getting an i5-2300 since you have a H61 motherboard and cannot overclock with that.

save another $30+ and get a seasonic S12II bronze 520, you don't need more that 500 watts to run that rig.

get a 500 Gb hard drive for $20 cheaper . . .
