Try this.

Head to tomshardware.com and see if they have it on the CPU charts. Since it's gaming and not for video transcoding you'll have to go with those and other charts.

Check the motherboard mfg specs to determine which

processors may be compatible and then see what prices on your favorite retailers.

If you are in fact building a PC for gaming .... don't overlook the linked website's advice....
"Video Card: Here's the most important part of a gaming computer, and would be THE place to invest more if your budget is higher. Of course, the HD 6570 is highly capable when compared to integrated graphics, but still will lag on more intensive games. If you can invest in something more powerful, such as the NVIDIA GTS 450 or the Radeon HD 6670, then go for it."
