    If it's been a good few years I think even a low end X2 will impress you.
    I would suggest a midrange AM2 such as the 4400+.

    Which board rather depends on your requirements.

    I recently bought a lil Gigabyte 780 board and have been very happy with it.
    But then, I am only using the onboard graphics with my setup.

    HDMI output is a nice bonus.

    Unless you are planning hefty overclocks you should be fine with a budget board, as long as it has the features you require.

    I have one or two Asrock boards that have been rock solid 24/7 for well over a year.

    As I said, all depends on you requirements.
