4300 (3.8ghz) VS. Phenom II 970 (3.5ghz).

Remember it really depends on the game too, but there is only like 2 games I have seen that a Phemon II beats the new FX chips.
the cpus he suggested were the old Bulldozer FX CPUs, and the PII beats them.

With that budget I'd upgrade the cpu cooler to a watercooler (Corsair H series or such like). And WD Black HD as it has 5 year warranty.

There is nothing wrong with the current Barracuda's. Well I added the latest WD drive here (its a Blue but its WD's fastest regular drive). That being said the Barracuda remains slightly faster (its been all detailed here if you browse through the thread).
Also the 830 costs the same price it seems. Swapped.
So now: http://pcpartpicker.com/uk/p/rtwu with the WD or http://pcpartpicker.com/uk/p/rtws with the Barracuda.

Note: I say it again the Caviar Blue 'EZEX' is faster than the Blacks.

I would say this build http://pcpartpicker.com/uk/p/rtwu does not get much better for the money i cant find anything wrong with anything in there
I have worked with the 3570K and the Cooler Master Evo 212+ myself and the only complaint i have with the 212+ it is the mounting system which i tought was really anyoing
