Depends on the use but in terms of low budget, AMD normally rules that relm.

Motherboard : MSI 790XT-G45 AM3/AM2+/AM2 $90.00
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Processor: AMD X3 435 $75.00
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

+$15 for shipping so you have $20 left to add to your Video Card budget.

It is AM2+ motherboard so you need DDR2 RAM but if you prefer AM3 motherboard then this:
Motherboard: MSI 790GX-G65 $125.00
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

But you have to shelve out $15 more for shipping unless you can find a combo.

Both motherboard have "unlock core" feature so if you are lucky you can get a quadcore out of the X3.
