Not having a job SUCKS.
For ~$200, you can have a cheap 775 mobo, a dual core Conroe Celeron, a gig of DDR2 and an OEM copy of Vista...

Mobo- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813153074 There is a discount with this motherboard if you add Vista with it when you add it to your cart..

Processor- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819116064

Ram- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820141343

came out to $206.61 shipped for me...

But if you want to game, I say your best bet is asking your mom to let you save a reasonable sum every month, so that after 2-3 months you'll have enough for a decent budget rig.

That is:
A E2140 equivalent 45nm Intel, or AMD if they snap out of it.
9600GT, or ATI equivalent
2GB of budget RAM (it can come real cheap nowadays)
and an AsRock mobo

And you can hopefully steal storage/power/case from your current setup.
