It would depend on what store you want to use, but NCIX for example has an i3 540 for $106.98. It's a first gen i3 though and uses LGA1156 instead of LGA1155 like the newer ones.

Are you just looking to build a cheap PC with Intel?

"Are you just looking to build a cheap PC with Intel?"

I was thinking the same thing

LGA 1156 mobos are harder to find and are more expensive now so it is probably better to get a 2nd gen i3

The i3-322x are supposed to launch next month so if OP is not in much of a hurry to build his new PC, this might be worth waiting for. Otherwise, I would recommend 2nd-gen with b75 or h77 motherboard to keep a reasonable number of options open.
