$180 · Intel i5-4590 3.30GHz CPU + Z87-A Motherboard + Zalman Cooler
The Haswell i5-4590 has a Passmark rating of 7315, with a single-thread rating of 2114 https://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu.php?id=2234 .
This is comparable to the modern i5-6500 https://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819117563 ($300), and beats all mid-high end AMD cpu's in single-thread performance.
It runs cool enough to not require a fan.
Worked well for VR gaming, Elite Dangerous on max, Overwatch, Fallout 4, etc.
Comes with an Asus Z87-A LGA1150 motherboard https://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131981 . The sound card in it doesn't work, but I can include a USB sound card with it if desired.
Comes with Cooler with large heatsink: Zalman CNPS10X https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835118099
I'll accept $140 for the CPU alone.
I also have an (entry level at this point) GTX560Ti https://www.usedvictoria.com/classified-ad/GTX560Ti-EVGA-Graphics-Card_32985154 available for a media PC, etc
