New or used? You can easily find a used X58 setup and a Xeon for that much, I'd go that route. Either that, or Ryzen.

if anything, i would personally reccomend you get a nice cute little core 2 duo(or quad if you wanna hurt my feelings) and pair that with 4gb of ddr2 ram and a nice old ATI Radeon HD4870. it may be an old config, but it is great for playing older games and can run things like fallout new vegas amazingly

Sadness is the one true emotion, and happiness, well, that's just a lie, sadness is all many of us feel, and is all we need to feel, because having it any other way, would just be wrong, why be happy when you can just be miserable like myself.

Just the CPU? If you want new, the Ryzen 5 2600.

Ryzen 5 1600 @ 3.9 Ghz  | Gigabyte AB350M Gaming 3 |  PaliT GTX 1050Ti  |  8gb Kingston HyperX Fury @ 2933 Mhz  |  Corsair CX550m  |  1 TB WD Blue HDD


Inside some old case I found lying around.

If you have DDR3 RAM already then something like a 4690K and Z97 motherboard might work

If you want to go new:

nah i think i will use a raspberry pi instead, with my blazing fast 1gb ram and 1.2ghz quad core imma beat that core 2 duo.

When both of those cost the same I'd always pick the newer option. While X58 and a beefy 6 core Xeon are nice in many ways, it's still 8-9 year old gear without a way to upgrade it cheaply. Those are just my two cents, though :)
