Then you can concentrate on a decent cpu if that one has a stoke again

Computer issues can be expensive irritations with bad parts
I was very nervous on this assembly of mine in my system spac's but worked out so far.
Alright cool, thanks.

The main priority is to get it up and running so that I can get my data back, I have a Mac that I used to run from time to time but right now it's my main machine so really all the pc needs to be able to do is basic image processing and web browsing.

I would think a Celeron would be the cheapest, but it`s not worth buying.

You can boot and run Ubuntu from thumb drive or DVD. It will not modify your Windows files. It is free and it will help you determine if your hardware is OK or not. If it boots and runs, then I suspect your problems are with Windows.

As you know, LGA 1155 socket CPUs have not been in production for quite some time. Computer stores will either try to clear them out at a discount price or charge a premium because they know the only other option is to purchase a newer socket CPU and motherboard. You are going to have to do some leg work to find the cheapest. But will say the Pentiums, Celerons and I3s were the cheapest during their day.

Since you are on a limited budget, why dont you think about buying a used CPU, let's say from eBay from an experienced seller who offers money-back option ? It will save you money
