i5 def faster, I think we should support AMD as best we can while we can :P FX6300 is still a damn good chip.
Asus M5A99X EVO motherboard or similar
Ram 8gb ddr3 1600 Gskill CL8 or CL7 timings
GTX670 if that is what you want, I would go Radeon 7970 or GTX660Ti MSI power edition it can easily keep up to a 670
Hyper 212+ cooler with dual stock fans, it easily clears my Gskill GBXL ram spreaders
antec neo eco 520c power supply
Rosewill Challenger case
60-120gb SSD as primary OS drive, if you get it "now" you can get a 256GB SSD for the same price you normally get a 120gb such as Agility 4 SSD as an example, well worth the cost to have this kind of speed.
All told, this would be around the price you are looking, and be plenty fast. The Asus board I mention is also a hell of a motherboard, great overclockers board as well.
