you're basically lookin at AMD phenom II quad core (around 130), Gigabyte motherboard (100), 4gb (2x2gb) DDR3 1600 kit (around 100), ATI 5770 1gb version (150), DVDrw ($20), basic 500gb 7200rpm HDD ($50)
These prices are estimates off the top of my head, but should be pretty close. Look for versions with Rebates on newegg.com, zipzoomfly.com, or wherever.
*That leaves roughly $200, which will get you a nice HD monitor 22-24" from logicbuy.com
-If you do want to OC, then you'll need to invest another 30-40 for an aftermarket cooler and $6 bucks for some Arctic Silver 5 thermal grease
