First off, replace the hard drive with a Western Digital. Way more reliable, and only a dollar more:

You're better off getting a 7600GS for $85.

I would get one stick of memory for upgrading purposes.

You'll also need DDR2. I don't think you can purchase a DDR Core 2 Duo ready board.

There really isn't a good board for $100 or less. I would get this:
