    Intel: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819115077 (check craigslist for cpus; my local listing has a used 2500K for $160; new unopened 2600K for only $200.

    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.
