Unfortunately for that kind of budget you won't get a very good CPU, at best your looking at a very low end Allendale or a Presler type CPU.

with your budget i would have either gone with something like that or get a brisbane and put most of your money into a really nice AM2 board.
what the heck is up with this --- go down the page a little and take note of the price of the 4000+ Brisbane, now click on its link and then look at the price-
