You could consider this:
Newegg.ca - AMD Athlon 64 X2 7750 Kuma 2.7GHz 2 x 512KB L2 Cache 2MB L3 Cache Socket AM2+ 95W Dual-Core black edition Processor - Processors - Desktops
In some cases, it's faster compared to a E5200.

Here is a good motherboard for it:
Newegg.ca - ASUS M3A78-CM AM2+/AM2 AMD 780V Micro ATX AMD Motherboard - AMD Motherboards

if you plan on overclocking then the e5200/e5300 would overclock higher. the 7750 is also slower clock per clock vs the e5200.

what i am saying is that if the e5200 and the 7750 were both clocked at the same GHZ speed then the e5200 would win in almost every test. and the e5200 has been known to 3.5GHZ and beyond. where as the 7750 hits a brick wall around 3.3GHZ.

well with stock cooling you would expect to hit at least 3GHZ and with a after market cpu cooler then you could expect to hit about 3.5-3.8GHZ
