  1. For a CPU I recommend:
    Intel Core i3-2120 Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz LGA 1155 65W Dual-Core Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 2000 BX80623I32120

    For a Motherboard, I recommend:
    GIGABYTE GA-Z77M-D3H LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128541

    These are both good choices for a budget build that will also run most modern games at moderate settings given your 6870 Graphics card.
  2. What kind of ram do you have. If its older ram it may not be compatable with new motherboards
  3. take a look at micro center mb and ib/sb prices there lower then new egg.
