Default Which cpu and motherboard?

Obviously, I'm new to the forums. My computer just broke and I am about to uprade, I just can't decide on what I want. After doing alot of reading it looks like I want to jump ship and get an AMD cpu; leaning towards the AMD Athlon 64 3700+ Processor (San Diego) Socket 939. The benchmarks on different games are what got me to look at AMD. At the same time I do things that would take full use of a new dual core or even a 6xx pentium 4. Can you guys give me a recommendation on what cpu to get and a motherboard to match. The only cooling upgrade I may do is get a good fan for the cpu, definitely no water cooling and probably no overclocking. My main concern is stability when it comes to the motherboard.

Thank You,

I was going to recommend a DFI board, but then I saw that you aren't going to overclock.

Go with the MSI K8N Neo4 Platinum.

It's one of the most stable boards out there if not the most stable and user-friendly.
