the processor is around 180-200$
a I5 - 750 would be a better choice but if you want to keep your processor
mobo - INTEL G45(DG45ID) DDR2 this would be good
INTEL P45(DP45SG) DDR3 this is also good

I completely agree with the above two posts. You should absolutely not be even considering an old LGA 775 chip for a new system, especially for CAD type work. An i5 750 will smoke that old Q9300.
