good day... on the quest for a truly budget build I notice s large price drop on used clarkdale cpus' 20$+

could use advice from oldtimers that know best boards to use with this kind of build... im sure ddst is a must ..

im finding ga h55m ud2 boards for 60$ but hope thats negotiable..

only need ram now... think i have some ddr2 lying around.

have a gtx 580 evga ... work otb? i know my trusty 4870 might match this cpu well.
