Welcome to Tom's Forum! :) 

I assume you mean "AMD Athlon II X2 245 Regor".

Discrete GPU:
ASUS M4A87TD/USB3 http://usa.asus.com/product.aspx?P_ID=nlWYrI9wlNIYHAaa
$100 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
CPU:
Athlon IIX2 245(ADX245OCK23GM),2.9GHz,1MB,rev.C2,65W,SocketAM3 0601
Athlon IIX2 245(ADX245OCK23GQ),2.9GHz,1MB,rev.C2,65W,SocketAM3 0601
Athlon IIX2 245e(AD245EHDK23GM),2.9GHz,1MB,rev.C3,45W,SocketAM3 0601

Onboard GPU:
ASUS M4A88TD-M/USB3 http://usa.asus.com/product.aspx?P_ID=Ta95CVPnAzVDwMyG
$105 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
CPU:
Athlon IIX2 245(ADX245OCK23GM),2.9GHz,1MB,rev.C2,65W,SocketAM3 0302
Athlon IIX2 245(ADX245OCK23GQ),2.9GHz,1MB,rev.C2,65W,SocketAM3 0302

My feeling the ASUS M4A88TD-M/USB3 with the USB3 is worth the extra $5 over the budget, but I've added in the side-by-side the non-USB3 version which is under your budget.

Sorry, I completely missed your specs "firewire port".

I'm not a GA fanboy, sure. The trade-offs are no USB3 or SATA3 for the IEEE 1394.
