None of the above.

The most critical component in a gaming pc is the graphics card. To that end, you should look at cards in the $100-150 range or better.
That is, in the US, something like a GTX560 or 6870.

The next component is the cpu. While the x4-955 is a decent cpu, the sandy bridge 2100 is generally better.

Lastly, ram is cheap. 4gb is essential in a budget build.

If I had to pick, I would take option 3 and add in a $150 graphics card and 2gb of ram.
