The best onboard gfx is on AMD motherboards . Its much better than the intel options at this time .
So...

AMD Athlon II X2 245 Regor + GIGABYTE GA-MA785GM-US2H AMD 785G HDMI m-ATX
combo $125.99

4gigs DDR2 ram $48 amir

Thats fits the budget. The mb is m-atx but it fits an atx case and works fine unless you have a whole bunch of pci cards you want to plug in

Skora beat me to it and his RAM was a better deal . I must be getting old . I cant keep up ........
