Spend a few extra on a quality mobo even if it means waiting longer. You will be unhappy if you cheap out and find that you can't do the things you wanted.

Minimum I would go is this:

Gigabyte GA-MA770T-UD3 $69 shipped
G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 $45 shipped with promo code EMCKGKB23
X2 555 $90 shipped (keep in mind, these are becoming less and less likely to unlock)
This on the other hand already assures you at least 3 cores and is very likely to unlock to a quad. Also starts with a higher stock clock. Currently on sale - $89 shipped with an $8 promo card
$28.43 shipped
It's so little!

That's a good board for a 95 & below TDP CPU
But the other one (A780L3L) would be worse

See if you can find a cheap Biostar 870 board or so there (open box maybe)
Or an open box 79XTD EVO

Mobo : I likey!

CPU : Now that you mention it... A Rana Doesn't Sound like a bad idea...
3 Cores @ 3.3 (stock) + hyper 212 . Overall : I Likey!

RAM : didnt they have problems with mounting the Hyper 212 on with the heat spreaders?....

Don't buy Hyper 212+ on Newegg

On Newegg it's a ripoff. I tell people to always never buy 212+ on Newegg; they need to learn they're seriously ripping people off even if the cooler is popular. I can pay less than half price ($15-20 depending on sale), shipped/picked up, at my local computer store (NCIX) for a Hyper 212+.
