There has to be a specific limit for the budget and you don't need a i7 for gaming especially when your on a tight budget.

Try to get an i5 3rd generation or a laptop with a bigger dedicated GPU if you intent to use it for heavier games and better performance.

The lowest end i5 or a AMD FX-6300 would be fine for a CPU. For the motherboard have a look at the Z77 chipset for Intel and 970 or 990FX chipset for AMD and it's best to get full-atx. With the games your trying to play which isn't really intensive a 7850 would perfectly work with the games.
