Amd: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... (on sale for $100 with email promo code through July 4th)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... (micro atx, good features and value)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... (if you need ram)

Intel: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... (check craigslist for cpus; my local listing has a used 2500K for $160; new unopened 2600K for only $200.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... (will accept ivy bridge cpus without a bios flash; for non overclockable cpus like the 2120)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... 1.5v 1333 ram recommended by Intel)

If your power supply is a cheap brand or is over three years old, I recommend a new one by antec, ocz, or corsair. Newegg has a corsair for only $25 after rebate.
