eh, i doubt you fried the mobo or cpu from static, unless youve been excessively rubbing your feet on a carpet.

that depends on the mobo. youd have to look it up on the vendors site and check which cpus will work and whether youll need a bios update for support.
is 350-400 your budget for just the cpu and mobo or for everything you said you wanted to upgrade (mobo/cpu/ram/gpu)?
i know you said you didnt want an i5, but it is a fast cpu and is well within your budget including a mobo.
