Need Help / Opinions!! new PC

hello, i am in need of a new gaming PC nothing crazy high end stuff, just want to run D3 smoother then i am now.

This computer i had since 2007?
Intel Quad Core 2.66Ghz
Geforce 9800 GT
Corsair 120 SSD

So my Budget is about $400 - $500 give or take.
i am only looking to upgrade the main components.

RAM (maybe i won't need ram? i have 2x 2GB Corsairs.)
Video Card

i have looked into the AMD FX 6300 as a base to start. don't know if its good or not.
if anyone has any good suggestions drop a line!

I'd upgrade to 8GB (2 x 4GB) RAM.
You looking to go with AMD or Nvidia for gpu?

always been a fan of Nvidia, i am looking for a partial upgrade tho, with the cpu/mobo and gpu replaced. Ram is optional for me, since i think believe i have enough...

and also with a socket 775 cpu heatsink fit a am3 socket cpu?
or are all heatsinks universal.

no that won't fit an AM3. If you buy a new cpu (you said looking into a FX 6300) should come with stock cooler.

for gpu, for your budget wise, should go with a GTX 750 Ti, or maybe a 760 if you're not afraid to spend a little more.

so i am looking into the

ASUS M5A97 R2.0 Motherboard to go with the FX 6300 with a gtx750 (cause im cheap or maybe i might go with 750 Ti), and 8GB (2x4GB) Corsair ram, either way i was never a fan of the stock cooler.
