If you're going to purchase a quad core phenom II, frys has the 925 denab with msi 750 sli ddr3 board for $159.99 after rebate (in stores only until Thursday). The 925 may not be your first choice for cpus, but the board is almost free after rebate. And it can be overclocked. If you don't live near a frys, newegg has an asrock M3A785GMH 128M Am3 for $84.99 with free shipping. Some asrock boards will unlock cores on the am3 cpus, but I would just spend a little more and get a quad if that's what you want.
