burpingcat this is what I would do with your budget, hdd and such were not included so.

Option 1 (pure processing I tried to include a decent video card, you can wait for prices to go down and bump up the CPU in favor or RAM and put in a cheaper video card)
$158.99 Intel LGA 775 Pentium 4 520 2.8 GHz, 800MHz FSB, 1MB L2 Cache, Hyper Threading Technology
$162.00 ABIT "AA8XE" 925XE Chipset Motherboard For Intel LGA 775 CPU
$153.25 Kingston HyperX 240-Pin 512MB DDR2 PC2-4300, Model KHX4300D2/512
$119.00 CHAINTECH nVIDIA GeForce 6600 Video Card, 128MB DDR, 128-Bit, DVI/TV-Out, PCI-Express, Model "SE6600/128"

Option 2 (graphics would be better but processing power is lessened a bit I tried to balance it)
$158.99 Intel LGA 775 Pentium 4 520 2.8 GHz, 800MHz FSB, 1MB L2 Cache, Hyper Threading Technology
$68.00 GIGABYTE "GA-8IP775-G" i865P Chipset Motherboard For Intel LGA775 CPU
$132.50 PQI POWER Series 184-Pin 1GB DDR PC-3200, Model MD441GUOE
$215.00 SAPPHIRE ATI RADEON 9800 PRO Video Card, 256MB DDR, 256-Bit, DVI/TV-Out, 8X AGP, Model "100557-RD"

I would go with the first option alot of it is very upgradeable so, those are the options I would present to myself. You can change some of it if you worry about budget.
