Couple of suggestions:
- If you aren't planing an overclock maybe look at the E8500, very slightly more expensive but a good investment for performance. (+$20)
- See if you can find a WD 640Gb drive or Seagate 7200.11 in your budget both are faster than the older series. I think the WD is around $70 (+$20) and gives you half as much storage space again.
