CPU: $60

GPU: $170
GIGABYTE GV-R577UD-1GD Radeon HD 5770 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

RAM:
G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-4GBNQ - Retail

I would start with a bells and whistles motherboard if I were you.

Wait for usb 3 sata 600 (or whatever they call em) if you can.

Why on a budget build would you recommend anything but a low to mid range motherboard?


Hm... If I could I'd get a less expensive motherboard so that at the very least I could start off with a Phenom II x2 instead of the lower cache Athlon chip... Unless you at least get a Phenom (II) x3 or Athlon (II) x3 you're gonna be cpu limited off the get-go even with a 5770, which offers performance near that of a 4870 or (and I think the Geforce 275).
