ideally for gaming.

As my current pc can handle web browsing, photoshop just fine, but it is getting out and I want an upgrade.

Also, to be able to play games on max, with a stable frame rate, as I probably have a horrible video card right now (geforce7350LE).

Would want it as cheap as possible also.

Do you think switching to this Newegg.ca - AMD Phenom II X6 1055T Thuban 2.8GHz 6 x 512KB L2 Cache 6MB L3 Cache Socket AM3 125W Six-Core Desktop Processor HDT55TFBGRBOX, seems to provide a decent cpu and it is less than the 1090?

just a CPU isn't good enough. and that CPU is overkill. i would drop to a PhenomII x4 965 3.4 or the like,
and the video card you picked is a tad underkill. go with something like a GTX460 or GTX470 or ATI equivalent.
and just my personal preference, go with Seagate or WesternDigital for a hard drive.
