Want to go REALLY cheap? Get a VIA Eden M1000. They have onboard video, 6 channel audio, USB, LAN, 1394, TV out and a bunch of other stuff as well as already having a 1GHz processor on the board. The board runs about $160.

It's a Mini ITX board. It will fit in any ATX case and work with any ATX powersupply. It is only 17x17cm in size so you could throw it into a tiny case as well if you wanted to.

Just a though. Good luck!

for a simple workstation, i get Intel grg boards a celeron 1.7 or so, 256 meg, 40 gig box and all whole mess for well under $300

i get the boards for about $30 new hunt around deals can be had

all good parts, very stable and more than fast enough for web, email and office stuff:happy:
