Bugdet Gaming Computer

Hello,

I would like to know what's the cheapest CPU/MB combo a GTX 460 1GB would run on without getting bottlenecked. I already have a monitor. I'll only be playing SC2, and I hope to do it at Ultra (or maybe High) settings at 60 FPS. I'll be gaming at 1680x1050 but planning to get an 1080p monitor in the near future.

I've been told that dual cores CPUs are the way to go gaming wise, so I feel like I have to look for them instead of the newers Core i* CPUs to save some cash.

PD: Sorry if I mispelled something incorrectly, I'm not a native speaker.
