You're not going to get (or need) a discrete GPU.
X2 420 and GIGABYTE GA-MA785GMT-UD2H
Kingston 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333
Seagate 7200.12 500 GB
Cheapest SATA DVD burner and OCZ ModXStream Pro 500W
$58 after rebate
Total: $332. Over budget, but close. This is about as cheap as you can get it...
