I'm building my own home computer, trying to stay within a budget, but not yet decided on CPU & MB.

This is what I have already bought:

Antec 200 case
Corsair 8GB (4x2) DDR3 XMS3 RAM
Antec Neo ECO 620C power supply
EVGA GT 240 512MB DDR5 PCI-E2.0 Video Card (Christmas gift)

Just looking for what anybody says is a good CPU & MB without me taking out a small loan for these items. Not really into gaming but would like to play some of the Medal of Honor games without a problem viewing/playing them.

Your time is appreciated, thanks,

If you dont want to spend much, you can pick up a quad core AMD athlon ii for pretty cheap and it will run ok.

I've found they overclock reasonably well to.

Phenom II X4 would be a better option, but would cost a bit more.

I'd recommended a 790gs or 890gs motherboard.
