Default upgrading my stuff to new mobo

ok, i have a dell and am looking to tranfer my aprts to a new mobo and case. my parts are:
6800gt nvidia 256mb pci-e video card
2 harddrives
1.5 gigs of ram (ddr sdram 2700)

If someone can give me a link to a good intel processor (perferably 150-200$, 3.0ghz)
that would fit into a good mobo (mobo about 100$).
If someone could find me a mobo and good processor, much help appreciated.
PS. mobo must be pci-e

If your a gamer, which you seem to be because of your graphics card choice, why don't you get an AMD processor?

I don't think you're going to find a motherboard that supports 2700 that's any good. I did a search on it on newegg and I didn't recognize 1 motherboard manufacturer.
