See, a 2500k ($200 CPU) is so inappropriate for this budget.  For the same price, you could have a 960T or 2100 (choose whatever) and a 6950.  That will give you MUCH better gaming performance in pretty much about every game.  The futureproofing of the 2500k is not as necessary compared to the GPU.  Every modern app is moving to GPU acceleration now.

Agian whats with the i3? Personnaly i cant see why a member on ocn would want a non-overclockable cpu. Even if you dont plan on overclocking it right away, in future you might. The 960t is a much better choice for this build. And you have the option to upgrade in three years to excavator and keep your board, where as intel will kill socket 1155 after ivy. I built a 1155 build, fast little thing, but for this build there is no real reason to go i3, unless you plan on upgrading in a year and not to overclock it. Even then, with the %75 chance of an unlock i would pick the 960t

Why? It runs cooler and it's better for games. They are not for rendering or anything like that. You can't overclock it but why would you if your just going to game and a decent cooler is $40+. With that extra cash you might as well put in the extra money for a 2500k. Anyways both are options at this budget.
