Default Building My First PC

This is my first time building a PC, and I need a bit of help.

I would like an Intel processor at least 2.5 GHz, but don't know which to get. Please make a suggestion.

Also, I need to know which motherboard to pair it with, and what kind of RAM it will need.

i got a 3000+ for gaming, works fine! With an MSI motherboard you can use the D.O.T. technology and overclock it to 3200+ speeds without noticing change in temp =)
