I know AMD is traditionally associated with value since Intel has held the performance crown so long, but you should check out the Core i3 540 and/or 550, they can found on Newegg.ca for $119 and $135, respectively, so an budget Intel platform is now competitive with AMD and you may have more luck finding and SLI-capable system for future upgrades.

Something you didn't mention before though, is a case and preferred mobo form-factor. If you already have case you may be limited to micro ATX but I've always preferred full ATX for expandability.

Sorry, what I meant was, are you looking for a microATX platform or an ATX platform?

Go for a cheaper Motherboard with crossover, like Asrock 785 or a cheaper without crossover
