atholon II x2 would do fine, PSU go with a decent rosewill when on sale ( there are some crappy ones but some will do fine), motherboard http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813130601 is a cheap AM3 board. hope this helps

Used parts will be your friend in this case.

If you are interested I'm selling my HTPC which consist of:
Athlon X2 240 2.8GHz
Gigabyte MA785GM-US2H
4x1GB DDR2 Value Ram
500GB HDD
LG Blu-Ray Drive 6x or ASUS DVD-RW
9400GT 512mb
Antec Micro Fusion 350 case

You would probably be better off getting another video card and case since it's low profile.

PM me if interested.
