I can't wait for Deneb to come out.
I wanna see the 4850E go under 40$!
get a 3600+ brisbane
my fave budget combo is my Biostar 570 SLI ($40 open box at newegg) and a X2 6400, $119. Mine runs 3.5 24/7.
if using high end GPUs in SLI I would switch the 570SLI for a Bio N750 ($100 open box) because its more effecient and has PCI X 2.0 (8X in sli but double the bandwith of the 570s 8X)
I had a 4850e, it ran cool but it definately was no 6400.
I won't suggest a particular combo but I personally picked up an Asus M3A and Athlon 64 x2 5600+ Brisbane and an Asus EAH2600 Pro Video card for just $300 myself (yes I would have liked a better videocard but budget restraints and the fact it was my first board with pci-e kept me from buying a faster card.
Runs very stable and cool, and is easily overclockable to 6400+ speeds even using the stock heatsink.
