Hey, I would definately go wtih the pentium d 805, but switch things around a bit... The cpu is obvious and needs no explanation, the cpu fan, well nothing touches it in that price range. I went with that mobo because its extremely flexible, (ddr, ddr2, agp, pcie), and cheap, while still allowing an overclock of about 3.3ghz-3.4ghz, plus plenty of options.

CPU - Pentium D 805 $94.99

CPU Fan - Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro $16.99

MOBO - ASRock 775Dual-VSTA $56.99

After this, its completely up to you. You have approx. $130 left and could upgrade the gpu with an x850xt pe or a 7600gt. OR, you could get rid of that ram and go with a gb stick of ddr2. Sell your old stuff and probably get both.
