If you're not overclocking you're getting the wrong CPU. AMD cpus simply are NOT cost-effective without an overclock. Intel beats them in virtually all price points otherwise. It's really the fact so many Intel chips are locked mad.gif that makes AMD frequently a good option.

Motherboard & CPU if you're a gamer:
i5-3350P (p means no integrated graphics) $180 + you get a $15 gift card
cheap Asrock mATX B75 mobo $55

Motherboard & CPU if you're doing video encoding/multi-threaded stuff:
Intel XEON E3-1230 V2 @ $239
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819117286
same cheap mobo as above.
