The used CPU is only minor important - any Intel Core should be fine.

More important is A) to get one with a compatible chipset - Intel highly recommended! - do not get VIA, SiS or stuff like that & B) to get one with a compatible graphics-chip/-card - GMA950, GMAX1300 or NVidia. Any ATI Mobility Radeon or newer Intel GMA cards are not fully supported.

AMD Phenom II X4 955 - ASRock AM3A770DE - 8GB DDR3-1333 - Radeon HD 5570 1GB passiv - BCM4318 802.11b/g - Snow Leopard Retail
AMD Phenom X3 8450 - ASRock AM2NF6G-VSTA (BIOS L2.39) - 4GB DDR2-800 - Radeon HD 4650 512MB - Snow Leopard Retail (retired) / OpenBSD
