Newegg has a regor 240 combo deal with cpu/heatsink, gigabyte 785 board, and 2x2gb of ocz pc6400 for around $217, last time I checked. The onboard video is pretty good. Check your ps for the 4 pin 12v connector that has been used for about 6 years now. 300 watts will be enough for this combo using the onboard video, and not overclocking.
