    For a super tight budget? Socket 754 board with a SiS or nVidia chipset (like this or this) and a Sempron 2800+, and however much RAM you can afford (512MB or 1GB).

    You'll probably want to get a newer power supply, unless you have one already that is ~300W, decent brand and has an ATX12V (square 4-pin) connector.
