far better for $250: i5-2400 ($180) and H61 board ($65ish)

More about : choosing cpu mobo

Thanks, I definitely like that setup. I think the i-5 is a good call, but I'm not necessarily sold on it.

So you're saying I should increase my budget for my CPU and decrease on the Mobo. I was worried about going too low on the cost of the motherboard, but I am not really sure what to look out for. I would like some room for expansion in the future. And I want to make sure it's fast enough to handle all of my other more high end parts. Any thoughts on this would be appreciated.

I searched for "H61" and found this ASRock board: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168..., which I assume to be the item you had in mind.

Any other opinions out there? I'd love to hear them!

Thank you!
