If I were you, i'd spend $20 more for the new i3 3220 Ivy Bridge, and since RAM is so cheep nowadays, you might as well get 8gb for another $20. Those two changes will help somewhat with gaming. Especially with the extra 4gb RAM.

If you don't need the optical drive, just take it out from the list. And sorry for no direct links for each individual items.
