Default Re: Budget Media PC

Choose this motherboard for intergrated video so you won't need the 7300GT
Newegg.com - GIGABYTE GA-MA69GM-S2H AM2 AMD 690G HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard - Retail

and slightly higher performing memory for just 5 bucks more.
Newegg.com - A-DATA 1GB (2 x 512MB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Retail
