Best way?

Honestly the benchmarks are the best way, or just know the hierarchy of the best to worst processors at this time. Tell me which one's you are planning on looking at and I'll tell you which are the best (and bang for the buck too).

Don't worry about breaking anything, just don't force anything and you won't kill your build.

For that price, I think the Core i5's and Core i7's could fit into your budget. If I'm converting to Euro's in my head correctly.
