Well.... considering every processor in AMD's lineup is sub-$250 (save the server processors) get the best, probably a 9950BE.

*Note: this is the newer 125w tdp version, not the 140w tdp one.

I just pulled the trigger and ordered one, along with a Thermalright mosfet cooler. $235 shipped from NCIX. I hope I can hit 3.4Ghz on this mobo with an Ultra-120.
