ABIT VA-20 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard $60
AMD Athlon XP 2600+ 333MHz FSB Socket A Processor $73.99
pqi POWER Series 512MB 184-Pin DDR SDRAM System Memory $39.99
EXCELSTOR Callisto 40GB 3.5" IDE Ultra ATA133 Hard Drive 47.00
Total Cost: $220.98

That puts you a bit over budget, but it's a good machine for regular ol' bull****ting around. Not a gamer, by any stretch, though.
