saving up is all well and good but if you are like me then you want something NOW for the ammount you have ($315 canadian or about $270 USD) this cpu

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103535

was suggested to me a while ago, and it seemed to get great reviews. if not, i've still had newegg.com suggested to me a lot so look around and find a cpu you like and then find a compatable mobo. gl.
