Core i5 750 Processor $199.99USD: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Paired with an Asus motherboard $119.99USD: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

And 4GB of Corsair XMS3 memory $94.99USD: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

and you've got yourself an excellent rig with room to grow (the motherboard supports AMD CrossfireX technology as well as the newer 32nm Core i5/i7 LGA 1156 processors on the horizon).

You would need a new motherboard, ram, etc. as well. Is $225 your whole budget or only for the CPU?
