Best processor for gaming ~150

I am looking for the best possible processor for around 150 dollars. I have a HD 7870 and a screen resolution of 1600 by 900 if that helps. Also, i have no preference to AMD or Intel. I play games like BF3, Skyrim, AC3, and MP3. Any help will be very much appreciated.

    dont know if this helps or not but I have,

    fx6300
    asrock 970 extreme3
    HIS 7770 ghz ed 1 gb
    16 gigs ddr3 1600 crucial ball. tracer
    2 tb hdd sata6

    recently played the crysis3 mp beta and was getting 58.1 fps..can play in 3D but with lower fps


    other games I play are crysis 1 & 2 batman arkham city and codbo 1 & 2, in 3D on a 60 in dlp 3d tv, using active shutter glasses with no problems on high settings.
  2. A Core i3 3220 will do you pretty well, but you should really save a little extra and go for the i5 3350P. The i5 is probably a better value.
  3. Best is to get fx 6300 cpu and it is best cpu around $150 and faster than i3 in multithreated games and also you can upgrade to stream roller cpu in future while intel's current socket it at end.
