What would be a good (Intel) LGA 775 compatible processor for around $100-$150?

yes that would be perfect, the e6300 outperforms the PD though, even if its only 1.8 it will beat the 3.0ghz PD or equivalent.

1.8ghz e6300 = 3.6 PD

So the e6300 is your best bet.

But it's over $150...

I would say a Pentium D 802, which can reach 4 GHz on air cooling, or perhaps a Pentium D 920, to actually stay in the price range. If you can scrape up $180-200, then definitely get the E6300. However, if $150 is top of the budget, just go ahead and get the Pentium D for now, but make sure you get a Core 2 Duo compatible mobo for an upgrade path.
