Starman's Super Crash Brothers 64 - New CPU/mobo time!

Since last September, when I bought a new motherboard and CPU, I've been unable to play just about anything without blue-screening. After a month or so of this, I figured out I could remove the problem by setting the affinity to only 2 of my 4 cores on the CPU. Lately, however, not even this has helped. I've been crashing more frequently even after altering the affinity, so I've decided it's time to get new parts.

tl;dr - Help Starman choose a new CPU and mobo!

Here's what I'm looking at right now for the CPU:
