You got a gift card for Amazon or something? Because Newegg is a better place to shop for PC parts.

What is a hard budget we can go off of because you have 100/100/50 but yet say 16GB of RAM (which btw is pointless) and no budget for that. Once all of this is settled we can continue.

Still need a total budget. What is in your current PC now?
If you want a newer CPU like the FX series you will need DDR3 instead.

If you had a slightly bigger budget, Intel would be the better bet. For an extra 30 bucks you could have an Ivy Bridge i3 combo which would be much faster at games than any AMD CPU.

As your request.

CPU:
Newegg.com - AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition Deneb 3.4GHz Socket AM3 125W Quad-Core Processor HDZ965FBGMBOX

Motherboard:
Newegg.com - Open Box: ASUS M5A99X EVO AM3+ AMD 990X SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS

Choose any case you desire in your budget. Just make sure it's capable of a standard ATX board.
