It's not a challenge, it's stupid. Intentionally picking a $200 CPU with higher cost associated hardware is dumb.

Best thing you can do is go AMD and get a 5850.

For 700 bucks and an i5 you're looking at MAYBE a 5750. aka craptastic lopsided build for no good reason.

At this price, you will be much better off going for a 955 (unless you're not looking into any graphics performance, like if you don't play any games or anything like that, but if you don't want graphics, it's a different story)
