You simply dont buy intel on a tight budget. haha...

Ill second the FX-4300 or similar since the OC headroom will more than make up the difference between it and an old Deneb. even if youre not planning on OCing for a while, youll have the option to boost up the performance easily and cheaply (just need a simply tower heatsink, check it out when ready).

What kind of gaming is this guy going for? I ask because he might be happier with an APU at 1366x768 and can add a PCIE gpu later on in asymetrical xfire. You'd also probably save some money that way, since you wont need to buy the 7850. Almost enough extra cash for a small 60gb SSD then.
