You be better of with E8400 if you intend to game, runs cooler, less strain on you mobo, less amps from wall socket and easier to OC if you want to, up to 3,8 with not to much vcore increase.

E8400, DFI X38, OCZ Reaper 1066 and 8800 GTS 512mb, looks like very good combo for gaming.

That´s my humble opinion.
