No Q6600 on that list?

I like Linskingdom's list but there are a lot of people that would still recommend the Q6600.

IP35 E, E6550, AC7.
That would be a good budget build. Just make sure your ram can hit 1000Mhz

Q6600- 250ish
ip35-E- 90ish
Tuniq Tower - 45ish

$385, but you may be able to shop around and get that to your price range.
