AMD Phenom™ II X6 1090T 3.2GHz Black Edition with M5A87 or M5A97
or
Intel® Core™ i5-760 with P8P67-E LX

and what ram does each mobo support

Here's the current system im building

PowerSupply: OCZ GameXStream 600W PSU
Mobo:Will be decided according to CPU
RAM:Will be decided according to Mobo
Case:NZXT Guardian 921 RB Blue LED Case
Monitor:Samsung SyncMaster BX2031 20 inch LED LCD monitor(1600x900 max res)
GraphicsCard:MSI N460GTX Hawk 1GDDR5

besides the speakers,mouse,keyboard and DVD Drive that have nothing to do with compatability

That motherboard will not support the i5 760. If you will overclock and gaming is most important then the i5 is the way.

But why don't you choose a sandy bridge i5?

i wanna cut down the budget a lil bit so i was thinking i could get a amd processor so i only need to know if there is a amd processor better than i5-760 2.8 GHz for gaming

i can get i5-2400 aswell with a asus P8H67-M LE or LX

i did check that out and idecided to stick to the i5-2400 now i need to know which mobo shud i get i checked out ASUS P8H61-M LE/USB3 Socket LGA1155 motherboard and H67 one but i think the difference between the 2 is the onboard graphics if so ill get the H61 and i still need to know what ram is supported by that mobo cos i got a fine 2 GB deal for 15 usd kingston 1 if so ill get 2 of em or 3 if the mobo supports triple channel

Edit:
just discovered that H61 dusn have 6GBs sata so i guess ill get the H67

i built an i5-2400 with p8h67-m pro and it runs great. That motherboard has all the features you will need. I would highly recommend that build against amd or older i5 if you're intention is gaming...

They would fit; however, it'd be nice if you could post your total budget and the prices for these parts... I'm sure we could offer a few suggestions on what can be improved. Seems quite good so far, though.

P.S. You won't see a difference between Z68 boards and P67 boards unless you're using SSD. And P67 boards are usually cheaper. So post your budget and we'll see.

Any good 1333 MHz RAM will do for gaming... it's just that you should try to get 8 GB instead, but 4 GB should be fine, too. I'd go with the P67 mobo and a 600W PSU... also, you can try and look for good deals, adding 17USD will allow you to get Core i5-2500K, maybe... And I'm not sure, but I think you can do better than GTX 460 (which is still good, though) for $210 - for that money, you can get GTX 560 Ti.

Unless, of course, your country has the same problem like mine: old hardware doesn't get cheaper fast and new one costs double the normal price...

Fine, leave the 460... still a great card.. what resolution is that 20'' screen, by the way?

Are you sure you can't upgrate to 8GB instead of 4? (2x 4GB)

Don't rush it. Better to spend a couple more days looking for advice than be sorry that you bought the wrong parts :)
