Basically I want A cheap empty computer that I can upgrade piece by piece over the next few months (every pay check ;)  ) because I get payed ~150$ per 2 weeks.

Price 200$-400$

At least a very good Motherboard
A good PSU like 500+PSW
And a good Gaming case, Mouse, Keyboard

I plan to buy the following in the future so it must not have:
No Fans
No Harddrive
No DVD drive
No Card readers
No Monitor

I know there is a name for these types of computers but I don't know what they are called.

I want something like this because I currently have a 2005 PC that I have upgraded it the best with the stock motherboard (2nd line in sig).

It currently has the best GPU and CPU And I do not wish to spend more on this PC to upgrade. I will give this PC to my brother so I will not be "Simply" upgrading the motherboard.

I want to start a new build :D  .

I'm kind of confused. Are you planning to reuse the cpu/gpu and other components for the time being? Or just going to buy the motherboard/ram/psu/etc and have it sit until you have the funds to get the whole computer? If the latter is the case, i suggest just saving until you have enough money to buy the whole computer all at once. There may be sales or prices drops by the time you get enough money to complete that build.
