My System Specs

Default New Build

Well seems like i need some opinions, so here's what i have as far:

CPU: ???
HSF: TRUE 120 w/ 2x Gelid Silent 12 ( 1000rpm / 37cfm each fan ) - only have LGA775 mounting kit atm.
Mobo: ???
RAM: 2x2gb DDR3 1333mhz A-DATA
PSU: Silverstone ST60F
Case: NZXT M59
Monitor: Acer 22"
OS: W7 Premium

So opinions so far.

Note: all components listed, i am already in possesion of .
What I do with it ?
Mostly web browsing, listening to music, and homework.
Occasional watching of 720P movies, photoshopping, video/audio editting &encoding.
Gaming now and then ( CODMW2, COD4, Crysis Warhead, HoN )

EDIT: I have around $200 to attain remaining components.
As well i need to find my receipt so i can RMA my effing GA-EP45-DS3L.

Need opinions. Want to get a computer goign within the next week or so.
Been too long.
Much, much too long . Been about a month or boredom, and lagging to hell on various computers ...
Be it a Pentium 3, or a slow ass Celeron 2.8ghz that's constantly overheating and @ 100% load .
Or right now ... Sempron LE1200 w/ 2gb of ram . Best thing i've touched inawhile.
It's running open air on the floor woot woot .

200$ or less for CPU+MOBO?
= Athlon IIx2 + 785g Mobo.
Might be able scoop better parts through trade forums and such however.

For $10 more I would go for the Athlon IIx4.

Especially with applications and games becoming more thread optimized.
