I'd repost this closer to the purchase date. Tues, intel will launch the i5 which is in your budget range. By then, there will be some reviews on how well it performs compared to the 940 as its expected to have a $200 price point also. If temps are a big concern, then don't get a 125w TDP CPU. The 945 has a 95w flavor now, but its a moot discussion if you're better off with an i5 anyway.

When you do repost, please provide the resolution of the monitor you use. That has the biggest effect on the GPU we'd suggest.
