Default New motherboard and CPU combo

Hey guys.

Recently my CPU on my computer has blow out.
A couple of months ago i grounded out my motherboard (it was old and my brother hit the turn on button too soon ><).

Now i am looking for a new CPU and MOBO combonation.

My old CPU was a AMD Athlon XP 2000+ and im not sure of my motherboard (got it from my neighboor)

Here are my specs: nVidia Gforce FX 5200 Ultra. 512 Ram. Soundblaster sound card. Ethernet card. i do alot of mutimedia stuff and a little gaming.

My budget is under 300$ and i dont need anything too fancy just somthing to work better then the last.

Here is what i was looking at:

thats a pretty decent combo, I think it will work good for what you are going to do with it. maybe get another 512 stick of ram though, it helps with multimedia stuff.
When all else fails...Ham Radio!

I still have the same old HP DV9700T laptop I've had for years...still kickin'
