To be honest that's a poor system.

 

CPU: AMD FX-4100 AM3+ 3.6GHz 12MB 95W

MOBO: ASRock 970 EXTREME4 AM3+ AMD 970 DDR3 ATX

RAM: Kingston 8GB (2 x 4GB) HyperX Blu DDR3 1600MHz DIMM 240-pin CL9

GPU: Sapphire Technology ATI Radeon 7750 HD 800MHz 1GB PCI-Express 3.0 HDMI

DVD-DRIVE: Best Value LiteOn 24x Int. DVDRW Black SATA + S/W Rev B

PSU: Corsair Memory 600W Builder Series CX V2 ATX PSU

CASE: Antec 300 Three Hundred Case Black

 

These are from a UK website called dabs.com and cost a total of £450 inc VAT and P&P. Probably about $400-500 in the USA

 

EDIT: forget the hard drive. it was a 500gb sata-3 drive

@KrinkinOnline: what's exactly poor about the rig I posted? Mine has a faster CPU and a faster graphics card (HD7750 is more or less equivalent to HD6770).

 

Here is a comparison between i3-2100 and FX8150: http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/289?vs=434

i3 wins in Dawn of War II, Dragon Age Origins (slightly), and WoW. FX8150 is better in StarCraftII, but just barely. And FX4100 will definitely perform worse than FX8150, since it's not a true quad core CPU. It has two modules, each consisting od 1 FPU and 2 ALU (not 2 FPU and 2 ALU).

FX4100 might catch up with i3 after OCing, but power consumption will be much higher.

I'd also go with the i3 2100, cheapest H61 board, cheapest 4GB mem. But I'd put in a radeon 6850. I'd also use whatever HDD you have right now, and wait until these prices come down.
