Any good motherboard +cpu(and possibly ram) combos floating around

I've been out of the computer game for quite some time. Have some spare money (not a ton 350-450 would be ideal)

I have two 460s, hard drives, and psu+ case left over from when my mobo fried. No idea what's good or bad these days.

Any good sales around lately? Would love to play my steam games again

I dunno about combos but RAM prices are through the roof right now so it's not the best time to buy that.

Kit I bought last year for $85 costs $156 now.

Wow really? I remember it being so cheap. I have 4 gigs of ddr3 I'm not sure if they've changed anything I could use it. I'm kind of sick of only having a smart phone and no computer =(

You can use your 4 GB of DDR3 with any current computer. You might lose out on a tiny amount of speed if you don't have DDR3 1600 because that's the currently dominant standard, but slower DDR3 (e.g. DDR3 1333) will still work fine.
