well.. since you say that you are on budget, then I would oppose with all of what you mentioned and just recommend you to squeeze your LGA 775 to its limit

which mean that I recommend getting a quad for your motherboard like the Q9550 - Q9650

this processor is still a beast, and will give you almost the same performance of the i5 and better than all the AMDs you mentioned, especially that you want it for gaming, and even for video editing the Q9550 is still very good.

good luck.

If you are looking in to the i5 760 it is the same price as a sandy bridge that will be coming out except the sandy bridge is at a higher clock speed.
Take a look:
