    If you want to run games such as BF3 in average performance and quality, start by looking at the minimum requirements of those types of games and work from them and find parts in your budget.

    an intel cpu which i've heard about is the i3 2100/2120... on the other hand, the counterpart for the intel version, is the AMD Phenom II X4

    Replace all the parts. They are all really bad if you wanna use other programs than word and a browser.

    ^ this. There's not much room for expansion on a build that's based on C2D, you're best off completely trashing any ideas of upgrading this PC and just getting a new one. Ideally you'll want to look at 6770-6850 grade graphics,perhaps a mid-range Intel or mid/high range AMD CPU and corresponding low/mid-end mobo/chipset.

    if you get a gtx 560 you MUST get a quad core cpu or then you will have bottleneck. 6850 it has a nice bandwidth but for gaming is good.

    Any LGA 1155 i3 processors will work fine with a GTX 560...
