Default IM back! :D selling old pc buying new Advice with this build

Alright hello guys its been quite awhile since i was on here for advice from u guys! u help me build my first computer haha so im back for some help and advice. So the computer u guys help me build awhile ago im now selling to a friend which im using that money to buy a new computer with it cuz its getting pretty old and now able to run modern games without tons of lag! But when i sell my computer im keeping my graphics card ( geforce gtx 460) and putting my old one in for my friend and im keeping my 1 tb hard drive.

So this is my specs on my computer right now which i got help from everyone to buy back in 08' time to upgrade!

case - RAIDMAX SMILODON Extreme Black
Proc - Intel Q6600 2.4ghz quad core/ stock fan
Mobo - ASUS P5N-D LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 750i
Video card - Geforce gtx 460 video card ( which im keepin for my new computer)
Ram - 3gb DDR2 800
Hard Drive - 320gb hard drive
Dvd burner - lightscribe something

__________________________________________________ _____________

Now this is the build that i picked out in like an hour of looking lol so i need some advice on my gear :P keep in mind this build will have a 1tb hard drive and a geforce gtx 460 card in it thats why theres no hard drive or video card. Im also going for AMD cuz im going for the cheapenss. Im just hoping this is better than my current build and even worth upgrading.

So my limit on all that stuff is $500-600 so im trying to find the best possible rig thats better than mine for the price. Im not willing to go over that. Im going AMD cuz its cheap but if theres a intel proc thats better and cheaper ill go intel but it depends, i just cant find a case thats cheap and has a lot of space

if you're happy keeping the cpu at stock speeds (pretty much no OCing allowed on the 2500), then you're good. if you want to OC, get the k series 2500.
