This build won't be for me and I'm not too familiar with AMD CPUs if I have to troubleshoot.. Show me AMD if you can but this build has to be solid; despite the price. Meaning, when it's installed and ready to go, there's no maintainance needed. No overclocking by the way.

E2180 $60
Gigabyte G31 $67
Lite-ON DVD $18
CM Elite 330 $40
Antec EarthWatts 380A $35
Crucial Ballistix DDR2-667 1GB $20
WD HD 160GB $50
Rosewill Cooler $13

Total $308 after MIR. The rig can be OCed but it is fine without OC at decent 2.0G stock clock speed.

Edit: Add HD and cooler

Total $277 after MIR. Get retail E2180 $80 if you prefer so total is $297. Acutally, the E2140 is a good option.
Ah dang it.. I forgot the harddrive. It'll go over if I throw that in. Can you adjust?

Are you sure you don't need a hard drive?

EDIT: Haha you beat me to it

Here, modify Lins' build with the following substitutions:

-$10 CM Elite 330
-$7 DVD Burner (IDE)

to give you enough for a $42 SATA 80GB HDD

You're $2 over budget but any more cutbacks would not be advised. You could get a less reputable PSU and have the system die (the earthwatts has a 3 year warranty and won't die), or go with less memory (1GB) to save about $10 and be regretting that. Just drink one less coffee tomorrow and you'll be ok

Another EDIT: The 2180 Lins linked you to is OEM, meaning it doesn't come with a stock HSF, which you NEED. So unless you have an extra one laying around, get the 2160 for $72, putting you a total of $14 over budget.
