I agree with wasupmike. Also, if you live near a microcenter, you can get the i3 2100 for $100.

get amd fx series and you will possible get a free motherboard at microcenter.. so that's like $100 for both cpu and mother board! Then get a graphics Radeon HD 6850 just like others said, and your total is just $235 (215 after rebate of graphics)
