Default Options For a Mobo / CPU combo?

Just looking for a bit of input guys!

Want to build myself a new rig (minimal building experience but enough to get through) as am selling my current rig.

Budget - $650 - $850 ish. This has pretty much got to include everything, except maybe mouse and keyboard. (OS, Monitor, etc.)

Also seen a nice 23" monitor for $150, which id like to encorporate, so i guess that leaves $500-$650.

Im not too fussed about suggestions for HD's, towers etc (sure if you have found a bargain or would like to - throw it in) Just mainly concerned with what sort of options there are for Mobo / processor combos.

Id like a fairly quick machine - no overclocking - or maybe only a v.small overclock to boost performance.. Will be doing some gaming - nothing too heavy tho (i.e probly not COD Online) and various other averagely demanding tasks. Probly wont upgrade it for about 2years..

Only one that has caught my eye is Phenom II x 4 955, maybe slightly pricey.

Anyone got nice combo suggestions? - Thanks in advance!

N.B. - I put all prices into $'s as I thought it would be more feasible!

You're from the UK?

Working in your currency is no problem...we just have to use different websites.

overclockers.co.uk and ebuyer.com/uk are the best sited to use over there.
