so a AMD X2 6000+ processor wont be able to play games for the next year or 2

It can play games just fine, however Intels offerings are currently superior to AMD's.

I find Crysis to be more GPU dependent rather then CPU dependent.
As for the settings, yes you should be able to, depending on what you classify as playable.

I'm sorry to hear about your father getting laid off.
I suggest making a list yourself and then we'll give you suggestions.

Do you know how to overclock?
Also, I hate to be a pain, but if you give us the price (or link) of things it'll be easily to know if your getting the best performance for your dollar. I have known Pentium D's to reach 300$ (stupidly high) because Intel quit producing them.

The above should just get you by for the sims 2 in terms of graphics.

It might be hard, but I think you need to spend a little more money into a monitor. That one is iffy, either that or I'd suggest sacrificing some performance for a better one.
