If you would buy the Athlon II x4 what mobo and how much ram would you be getting? I could not justify spending 175 on a CPU that is on a dead socket. If you got yourself a good AM3 mobo, then you would be able to upgrade to a bulldozer when it comes out or perhaps one of the current x6 processors. If the cheap quad will fit your now I think it would be worth the extra $100 or so over the Q9550 so that you will have a path to upgrade in the future.

Since you are playing at such a low resolution I doubt that you would need a very powerful GPU. This will really depend on the amount of money you wanted to spend and if you would be considering upgrading your monitor later on. Right now I would imagine that a ATI 5670 would work fine, but if you wanted to upgrade down the line, a 5770 would be a better choice.
