Help building budget pc

im going to help my GF's aunt build a budget pc I want it to be stable, and nothing super expensive, I feel it will be used for gamming but NOTHING major so I dont need a top of the line set up....

I am gonna linke some items tell me what you think and of course if you know of any please link them as well. They may need a new tower but... for now assume the tower is covered and it will accept an A socket amd motorboard.

processors:
I would like a good processor wont break the bank, I want it to come with heatsink and a fan if possible, not have to just possible.

Mobo's:
I want the mobo to have 333fsb with ddr ram, dont have to be dual channel,

just a few items ive found.....

I want to get a good stable processor and mobo try to keep it 120-130 for the mobo and processor... doesnt have to have the fan/heatsink just if possible...

for the vid card... nothing amazing but decent... 100-150 dollar range...

for hard drive, not to big but maybe 40-80 gig, probably 80 if possible.
